George,

I read a few posts over on dpreview about the issue, as I had one briefly with the same issue. As I recall, the cost to repair was ~$200+, so I just lived with the issue by taping the ring together. It was easier to accidentally switch to M, but other than that and a slightly junky appearance, there was no impact on the image quality. I would recommend NOT attempting to super-glue the ring together as it's likely to freeze the mechanism.

Hope that helps,
Chris

Here the lens, you can't see the broken part from this angle, but believe me it is broken ;)

.....But.... actually it's a WRONG way !!!
you have to start from the back of the lens.

Hope the repair works out for you... I missed those threads when I did my search, and probably would've attempted the repair myself had I known. Oh well.

Good luck, and let us know if/when you get it fixed.

Thanks,
Chris

You are a brave man to attempt a DIY lens repair. my 80-200 has the same crack, but a small piece of black electrical tape holds it in place. I never use manual focus anyway.
