Counselling urgently needed

Somebody sat on my camera!! It was in a lowpro bag - but look what happened to the lens!!



That was an 18 - 135 kit lens sheared off at the focus ring. It was attached to the camera at the time.

Luckily insured against accidental damage - but surely unrepairable.

Re: Counselling urgently needed

Unfortunately the culprit has not owned up yet. To be fair I shouln't have left it lying around in a house full of teenagers. So as my stepson said when I asked him to take a look " Woh nasty. You don't wanna look at that too long" How true.

Re: Counselling urgently needed

Oh sh..... ugar!

Not repairable, but interesting to take apart to see what's inside.

Your insurance company may spot that it isn't an 18-200VR, by the way.

Re: Counselling urgently needed

Don't pull it apart after the replacement is sorted ...Just shove it back together and slap some super glue around it....Should be fine

Re: Counselling urgently needed

You might have to look for 'brand new telephoto lens - unused' if the insurance co. delivers. Then I can get the 18 - 200 mentioned earlier!!

Re: Counselling urgently needed

tim0306blue , You may find the ins co (company)will want to give you the replacement lens. You can contact them and ask who is going to be the supplier (jessops quite often I think) then with negotiation just add to and get the one lens you really want......Friend of mine had similar,Burglary all her camera gear gone jewelry etc. The deal from the ins was something like. Cash value say 50% of replacement , or cameras offered by them or vouchers for jessops the value somewhere in between. The ins can be helpful if approached.....Bryher

Re: Counselling urgently needed

I know thta this may sound a bit goohlish but if you have not mended it yet any chance of a close up of the workings. I have often wondered what the inside of a lens looked like but never linvestigated

At least you may get a decent magnifing glass or two out of it.
