    Yeah, some minor repair needed. Or perhaps getting the new 580EX.

    In case anyone wondered, no, it's not me.

    It was me!!! Waaaaaaaaaahhhhh!
    Luckily the flash took the brunt of the fall so cam was fine. E-TTL seems to work perfectly now though.
    The swivel neck came loose. Trying to fix it myself. Actually my heart didn't feel much pain. My heart broke when I saw my pix. Really sucks. Thought it was the cam's fault but did some test shots at home and it was fine.
    I tried using the Sigma 50-500mm at first but it wasn't easy to handle and hard to get good shots. My first time using it for low-light. Then switched to my 70-200mm IS and used AI Focus as the contestants were moving quite fast but the shots didn't turn out much better. Anyway, I will probably go down to try out some fashion shots at Taka also. Anyone want to join me? This time I will wrap my cam and lens with styrofoam.

    Should have told them off or at least tell their parents. I would blame the parents for not disciplining their kids.
    Mpenza already posted the pic of the winner.

    Alright.....saw so many guys makaning the 3 winners at the front after the event when they were posing for photos. (what for....press already left i guess......actually was there any press/media other than TNP?). Think the gals were thinking we were from simi agency or press. I want to see the pic from behind (someone took it) showing all the hungry photogs' faces.

    Newman, i think u accidentally pressed on the lens release button. Else it will not dismount when dropped. I dropped my 50-500 too from 1.5m and it was way worse than yours (from the sound of it, and on pure concrete) but the mount was ok.

    Yep you are right. I accidentally pressed the lens release button when we were moving to another spot after the security let us through the barrier. I remember pressing it but was too eager to shift that I forgot to double check. Luckily the lens was securely fastened to my monopod and luckily the cheapest part (flash) took the impact. 1.5m??? Goodness! Did you break any glass???
