Lost the focus hold button on my 17-35 G
« on: September 21, 2017, 07:37:10 AM »
So. It's been a long time since I last posted, but long story short I got married last week, and am on my honeymoon on Maui, we were out on the road to Hana to day and much too my surprise my focus hold button was suddenly missing.

Does anyone have an idea where I may be able to find a replacement, or were I may be able to find a parts G lens that I could remove one from?
The first step is admitting you have a problem.

Firstly Congratulations on getting married :)

I can't help directly on sourcing a replacement Focus hold button, but if no one is able to come up with an option here then I'd suggest posting on  Dyxum http://www.dyxum.com/index.asp, there are a number of folks on there that can probably help you.
