    I dropped my Canon 100-400 lens today (yes I know, stupid of me). Though it appears to be working I'm not sure. Does anyone know where I can get it checked? I'm in Chesterfield for the week.

    The best place to check it out Lynne is on the front of your camera.
    Run it through a normal days shooting and review the images on a PC or laptop if you can...if not then your cams LCD will be fine as long as you enlarge the image to review it.
    If you find a fault then a quick Google or the like will find you the nearest Canon Authorised repair centre.

    When I dropped mine the alignment of the push pull zoom buggered. Another bit of damage was to the zoom lock ring. Check these very carefully.

    Sadly the firm I used for repairs is now gone...

    It's a pretty tough lens Lynne......i've had a couple of accidents with mine including a drop onto concrete when a camera strap broke. (The other time was on safari, when it bounced off the back seat of a land rover onto a metal floor.)
    Provided it's focussing ok, you can check the results on screen on your computer, and if all seems well.....just carry on using it !
