    I think the sleve on mine just needs to be fixed, and it should be good, but the filter wont come off either
     
  7. need help digging the hole? I'll come to the brial. After we bury your lens we'll dig another hole for that box shapped Nikon thingy. :mamoru:

    ohh I cried like a lil bitch and im not afraid to admit it. About an hour before I broke I was told I was going to cover Miss Universe's arrival to PR and also was going to be the ONLY photographer to be able to get real close to her. The 85 1.4 saved the day :big grin:

    That shouldnt be too much to fix?

    I got a qoute on the 18-200, 125$ two weeks out. Remove filter and replace sleeve.
     

  19. I had a shoot in the ocean today...... The whole time in the water I was thinking about this thread and how much I don't want to come in here to post my sad story. But lucky for me no butter fingers today! :wiggle:

    I usually crouch on my knees if I ever change out my lenses but it's not often I have to do so.

  25. nevar let teh womenz touch your camera stuff!!! :noes:


    I keep forgetting that also, I let my gf (who was modeling) hold my camera, while she was standing in the water while I moved a big driftwood log for a pic. I totally forgot about the "not letting womenz touch camera stuff" till now! I should slap myself.
