Lens repairs

Yesterday, i had the worst luck ever. My camera slipped out of my hands and fell on the lens. My FA50 can't autofocus and the focus ring is harder to move...
There's no apparent damage on the lens tho. I'm wondering if its expensive to get it fixed. (i have no warranty or box for it, bought it from my friend that converted to Canon)

Sorry to hear this.
So the camera is fine but the lens is no good...
It will not be free, but it may only need a quick internal readjustment which hopefully won't cost much done by someone who knows what they're doing.
