Ignore everything everyone else has said.
It's high time you lashed out and bought yourself a brand new,
ultra gorgeous, 1/3 of the holy trinity, sharper than a scalpel 24-70VR...
and sell that hideously damaged, obsolete, 24-70 to me,
for $100. :-)
The above was just an attempt at humour too.
What the OP should really do is slash his wrists or at least take a drug overdose for dropping a 24-70.
