Dropped nikon 8800



hey anyone have any work done on their cameras? i dropped mine on the extended lens from about 8 inches on to the carpet. I get lens error and the camera extend or retract into the camera. i kinda would like to upgrade but if it can be repaired for a fraction of the cameras cost i'd keep it. from past experience with electronics it has cost about what a new would cost to do work on it. any suggestions?
