You hate to see it...
The Canon 70-200mm is a precious lens. Yet, its Canon rubber rings need replacement, degrading its pristine value. Fortunately, Canon allows photographers to send them in for repair. Makes sense until you see the repair price.The repair price for the zoom and focus rings can sometimes cost almost as much as the lens itself, not to mention the several weeks a photographer won't have his or her precious glass.
The band.it is usually 10x cheaper than sending a lens in for repair, costing only $20! Adding extra protection to your lens, the band.it serves to maintain the longevity of your lens. The band.it stops zoom creep as well. It's a professional solution for any lens. We've accumulated a large database of lenses and add to them every day.
Where the band.it solution began
It all started when Thomas Bender, a photographer with over 25 lenses and 30 years of experience, kept sending his lenses in to repair the loose or damaged zoom and focus rings on his lenses. He knew there was a better solution and conceptualized the band.it. Finding a team of engineers, the band.it came into fruition, and now serves to save photographers money in place of camera manufacturers' excessive repair prices.
No matter what condition your lens is in, brand new, a slightly loosening zoom or focus ring, or the lens collar completely removed, the band.it will do its job. In the 2017 PhotoPlus Expo where we sold out, one photographer came to our booth, discovered what the band.it did, then ripped off his zoom collar and put the band.it in its place. Never again would he have to send any lenses in for repair.
If you're looking for a quick and cheap solution that work as a canon rubber ring replacement, and don't want to send it anywhere for repair, the band.it is available for purchase for $19.99. And with 1-2 day processing, you'll have your brand new, custom-made band.it in a fraction of the time it would take for Canon to repair it.
