I don't think there is anyone out there recementing lenses these days. It would cost you much more than you paid for the lens to have it done.

That I've done. I'm not completely opposed to doing the cleaning/recementing myself, but...I've never done it before. I guess doing it with a 30 dollar lens would be the best way to learn, but I actually *like* this lens. :P

I'm going to leave it alone for now, anyway, and just take lots of pictures with it. It's not bad.
