Well.......DadBlastedPackaFlatteraps !!!!!
It slipped from my grip and fell on it's face.
I am pretty sure the lens cap and filter saved the glass.
Can this be fixed?

My apologies if for any offence.





The filter ring is still attached.







Enough to make you puke.

It still works. Supposed to shoot tonight at a hockey game, but I don't know. Could be risky without the filter protecting the glass.

Well, I have calmed down and had another look.
Seems like only the Kenko ring is bent. Tried to get it off by hand with a couple twists but it must be wedged into the threads. Nothing else looks damaged.

If it's just the filter that's destroyed, I was able to VERY carefully cut the filter ring with a dremel tool or a small hacksaw type thing. Cover the glass, of course, shove a rag in there or something like that, but if you are able to get the ring cut it will come off very easily.

A buddy of mine dropped his nikon 70-200 and the same damage occurred. It was as good as new once I got the filter off.

Bear in mind that the biggest damages are inflicted by gravity.And kinetic energy. Heavy lens.

Yeah, I agree.
Such a shame. I suppose time will tell.
So far the lens still works great. Will be doing some work trying to get that ring off today.

Not sure if this is the proper forum for this, if the moderator feels to move it to another that would be fine. Let me know.

CPS will turn it around in a couple of days and it should run about $275.00

So are you suggesting I send in for a check?
I suppose it wouldn't hurt.

Oh, I got the filter ring off yesterday. Best $100 I ever spent. Saved my glass.

Glad your baby seems to be working.

I guess you didn't have the hood on.

May I ask why? In my experience, a hood would have absorbed most of the shock and would be cheaper to replace than the filter.

Also, I have heard stories that your type of drop caused the filter to shatter and cause scratches on the front element.

gheller,
I don't always have the hood on. In this case it was just a fumble. The lens cover and the filter dampened the impact. From what I can see, there are no marks on the front element.
Still pretty bummed.

Just fix it in Photoshop Sorry, I just couldn't resist that. I would send it in to CPS and definitely make a point to always have the lens hood on. Good Luck.

This is why I always have the hood on - if I don't actually want to use the hood then I put it on reversed. My hood is scratched as hell, my lens not at all.

My Nikon 70-200 fell out of my bag and landed on the lens mount/tripod collar. It's at Nikon being repaired now. Nikon's base charge for "impact damage" is $600 <sigh>

I was at an a event years ago and kneeled down to pet a dog and not knowing I stepped on the sling and when I stood up, the camera went to the ground and broke the lens off the camera...

Good news.
Got a new UV filter today. The front barrel is not bent. The filter threaded on smoothly.

I was shooting a wake board competition last Saturday for a client who develops wake parks. A photographer walked by me lamenting the loss of a Nikon 50 mm lens a few minutes before. He said he thought it fell in the lake when he bent over for something. I told him that I was sorry for his loss, then thought about the two Halliburton cases of Blad gear I sunk in Lake Ray Hubbard during a Regatta 20 years ago. It can always be worse!

Same thing happened to me a while ago, lens and camera fell off the top of the car, while I was driving away (long story). A trip to Canon fixed it, turns out just the filter ring was bent and it was perfectly fine.
