Had to happen. Dropped it - smash tinkle crash. My D70 hit the floor (carpetted - small relief) from a height of about 0.5 m. I was sat on a chair and dropped it when passing it to a friend, or should I say ex-friend ! Anyhow the 70-200 was too much for the bayonet and it simply ripped all the boyonet mounting screws out of the body and also jammed the mirror up. Lens looks OK - D70 is a mess. Sent it off to Nikon UK for an estimate this morning. I miss my camera.
