    Online source for Canon Lens Replacement Parts?

    The pin inside the Shift Knob of my Canon Tilt Shift lens got lost...Is there a way I can find a store online which sells replacement parts for Canon cameras?
    I have the knob I just need the pin to put it back...
    I have looked at ebay, etc and so far I couldn't find any stores which sells small replacement parts for camera lenses.

    Thanks for the help!

    Never seen the lens, never stopped me before. Does it go through the knob and shaft at 90 degrees?
    If it does, then a piece of brass rod from a hobby shop can provide it.
    As far as a genuine replacement, unless you can find a source of no longer made bits, I'm afraid you may be out of luck.
    Something like a camera repair shop may help but it's not going to be the guy down the street but someone who bought out Canon's old stock.

    Any info on the pin (diameter, length, material, finish)?

    Is there any work on the pin (threads, knurls, splines)?

    I can probably provide a suitable replacement (not an original Canon part) if it's not too exotic.

    Finally, I have sent it to Canon to fix it. They were fast and charged me around $120 which wasn't bad...I guess. I can recommend them!

    I wish I had seen this earlier. I ended up sending it to Canon. They did a really good job!!! I will let you know next time when I need parts!
