LMAO!!
UV filter FTW!

Well with the filter and the lens hood together you would have a complete lens still....:D

If they registered it, then they will get a call.

The 50 f1.8 would have fluttered to the ground unscathed, becuase it is so light and its lens hood would be its parachute!

Or just made a gentle "POOF" as it vaporized on the shingles...

I'm thinking now that the former owner of that lens became unhappy after comparing it to a 24-70L, tossed it overboard, and is out shopping right now.

I like the quote of $5,000 in damage to roof's eave. I guess they're figuring about $1,000 in materials and two laborers working together for a month to repair the four inch hole.


Replacing my Canon 7D, Tokina 12-24mm, Canon 17-55mm, Sigma 30mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.4, and 150-500mm with a Panasonic Lumix FZ1000. I still have the 17-55 and the 30 available for sale.

yeh, doesn't look like $5K worth of damage to me. That would take me about two days to fix by myself...wish two days was $5k worth of labor or I would be making the big bucks:D

Sounds to me like a lawsuit coming :rolleyes:

I would just jam a soffit vent in the bottom hole and staple a new shingle on top!

(just kidding - though I know people that might!)

That`s true , it might have faired better, since the lens hood did not help:)
