Today I went with my family to Monterey,CA, great place. Well on our third and last day of our trip, I dropped my D80 with my 18-200 attatched :frown:. The body is fine and the mount looks fine also, the lens is not obliterated, but is in bad shape. No dents or glass broken, but the barrel came apart at the focal ring, and I can see the internal parts of lens. Is there any way, I can save my lens at all? As for the lesson I learned...sometimes my parents aren't always right, I shouldn't have listened to them and just bought the insurance that could have saved me the grief and some stress. I didn't let the event spoil the rest of the day, I used the 50 for the rest of day, and still went on. This year is just plain bad for me and for my family, my father just passed a month ago, my older brother broke his hand, now my lens is in bad shape, tough times for me right now, but I'll manage, any advice at all for my lens? I bought the lens November last year at Wolf Camera, and the box says it has a 5 year warranty, so I hope I have luck. Thank you for any advice my fellow Nikonians.
