I've seen something like this before, if you are lucky, then it was a purpose break designed to limit the amount of damage done to the body lens and would only be a few hundreds to fix.

If not, then that sucks mate, i love goofing off, but not with couple grand of equipment. You buy one of those LensCups for that ^.^

Seeing the face of a friend as you send his 70-200 flying through the air is priceless.

Rental houses love it too, "Here i brought back the lens, CATCH".

Such a pity!! When it fell.. did it seem to be in slow-motion, or did it happen before you realized it? :confused:

I was laying there on the plywood and just heard it hit the floor. I was immediately relieved to find it was the lens damaged and not the camera. I have more lenses than I do cameras.

*cue Nelson laugh*

Having trouble feeling sorry for ya :P ...I sincerely hope it's not too expensive :(

What a rarity though! Canon finally joined Nikon in offering a 35mm PC lens. (Well, only a tilt lens really, and I think you lose infinity focus.)

It reminds me when I was on a video shoot. My friend and I were setting up Kinoflo lighting systems for the shower scene and somehow when my friend was finished hooking the lighting systems up, he tripped over the light stand and down came one of the Kinoflo set smashing into a RENTED 50L, knocking over the camera and the lens into the shower. Sad, sad, day for all Canon users out there.

This is a good lesson to only use our lenses on grass, sand or sponge surfaces.

Always pack a bit of grass in your camera bag then ;)

I just love threads like these, they gave me good material for a fun project I had going on FM before it got archived... http://www.fredmiranda​.com/forum/topic/83728​8 (external link)

I acquired an expensive camera so I can hang out in forums, annoy wedding photographers during formals and look down on P&S users... all the while telling people it's the photographer, not the camera.

That is genius and well worth looking at. The Nikon photo pit though..."We ran out of room, honest..." so is that Nikon = Hell? :p

Just got the repair estimate from Canon. $153.78 total with my CPS discount. $43 parts, $97 labor. Not bad. I was expecting much worse!

Actually, it's better if you leave the camera and lenses in the boxes they came in... with the styrofoam and padding, those things can take a lot! Plus, think of the re-sale value, you can truly say: Like New - In Box! :p
