    A bull bumped me and I was sent diving into the cess pool
    The camera still works and the humble 50/1.8 is still taking great pics today ....
    But the flash trigger from China KO'ed

    Conclusion: Never Again


    Use Telephoto lens.... LOL

    Battery pack in the pocket. Camera and flash on a table. Walk away pulling the cam and flash. Cam body ok. Lens and flash broke into half.

    So far, after so many years, only lost a Tk12-24 lens hood, my D300s bottom rubber cover for the grip contact, the rubber eye cup.

    Other wise nothing serious so far.

    BTW, I have yet to scratch or damaged any protective UV filter of my lenses. That being the case, I might consider forego the filter.... But, without filter, somehow, it feels like riding a bike without helmet, that is without protection. Well, the filter is just to feel safe la.

    Nothing too disastrous for me, just a ND filter fell and rolled off a jetty into the water.

    My Cam was mounted on a tripod with 24-105L, getting ready to shoot the laser show at victoria harbour in HK. My first trip to HK and it was my first day. Entire tripod collapsed , lens glass shattered .... but unusually, I was damn calm...LOL
    I am IN LOVE with my Camera....
