Broken UV filter

It fell out of the car when I opened the back door. It is a Canon EF 24-70 f2.8L on a Canon EOS 1D 4mp DSLR. Except for the destroyed 77mm Hoya HMC SUPER UV filter, camera and lens works fine.

    oh it is only the filter! very good! but I would make a service also for the lens maybe the IS is damaged a little!

    brrrr...... I am waiting for the exact same kit to arrive in a few days (together with a shiny new 5D). This shot gives me the willies.

    This problem is same happened to me exactly with my 24-70 on my 5D, and now i can't take off the damaged filter, any tips to do that?

    I carefully removed all the broken glass and then I used two pliers to remove the filter ring.

    Heroic filter :)
    I am going to show this photo to people who don´t bother to buy filters to protect their lenses.

    @aspechtl: the 24-70 does not have IS ;)

    Even thought the filter saved the lens from almost everything except a few small scratches in the paint, I will not try it out with mine. And: I would say, the lens hood would have even saved the filter, and the lens hood is less expensive. Maybe even nothing would have happend to the lens hood, regarding that it is made of plastic.
