    Kena sand in my old PnS superslim that scratched my lens

    Dropped my prosumer cam from knee height (tripod broke apart (!!!) ) onto hard concrete. Landed on barrel, narrowly cracking lens. Barrel cracked

    Dropped my entire conversion assembly (adapter ring, polarizer, wide angle) onto hard concrete floor from waist level.

    Some say dropped lenses may result in "misalignment". Anyone knows what that means?

    How to check? When the images appear out-of-focus?

    Never had and accident but did have equipment stolen...

    Was in Oz several years back and some scum broke into my home and made off with the cameras, lenses, enlarger, negatives etc...

    Alerted as many 2nd shops as I could in a 10km radius, gave serial #s and description so the morons were nabbed within a couple of days. Got most of the equipment back but the dickwads threw away all the negatives because they didn't think it had any value...

    Lost 20 years ... have never fully recovered from that incident...

    I think the wind blew it away. It may be still floating in the sky.

    Anyone spots a black object in the sky?

    Or has seen an alien walking around with a Lowepro camera bag?

    If losing 12 gigabytes of photos, 6gb of which not backed up and around 1gb of unrecoverable and damaged photos; emptying your bank account to recover them, this is it.
