Ok guys, here what happened to me today.

I just bought a sigma 28-70 F2.8 EX lens today for a decent deal.. was very happy about it and just so happend to have a photo shoot in the afternoon...

long story short... durring the shoot i feel and the lens smacked the ground and the lens broke in half and the main lens flew off the lens mount.

after i got up i was horrified. Very angry at the sigma EX lens line....i could drop my nikkor 80-200 from same hight and probably not have much but a dent in it.

:sad: man, horrible day.

moral of the story......do not run during a photoshoot.....and look at the viewfinder at the same time.... >< haha..im so stupid.

Well Cowardlylion,

Don't think you won't break a Nikon, Cannon,Tamaron or any other lens if you fall on it. They all will break. That is just part of photography. Things break, things wear out, things get lost, things get stolen. Someting could happen no matter how careful you try to be.

I do agree, I try to never run with my camera. Secrete word is "TRY"
