I was at my sister's baby shower, taking some pics of my nieces when the back step wobbled, I went face forward into the dirt, skinned my elbow, both my knees and my camera hit the ground at full force and broke my tamron lens........ my ONLY lens.
I think the camera is unscathed but I'll be taking it to get checked out anyway. I bawled my eyes out but nobody there really understood what my camera means to me.
Apart from the fact that the lens itself cost me nearly $1000(australian)
Its not even really how much it costs but the fact that without it I cant take pictures at all.
Okay so I was planning to get another lens very soon and get my camera serviced as there is dust in the shutter but still I could still take pictures.
I'm devastated.......... what am I going to do????
I did managed to get some shots before this happened so I might be able to post some final pictures with my lens.

oh my gosh. I saw your FB post and was like I am glad you are ok but so sorry about your camera! I don't know anything about how it works there but can you get your lens replaced perhaps? Let us know what happens with your camera. I remember when I first got my camera we went walking and I wasn't wearing the best shoes for a walk (sandals). I fell down and the lens hit the ground barely. I cought myself before I could really hit the ground. It was scary. Sorry you have to go through this
oh no i'm sorry

OH NO!!!!!!!!!!!! Cazz sweetie, I am so so sorry. I wish I had some advice, but I'm aat a loss. Maybe get a cheap nifty fifty till you can save up the money for a really niceone? I really am sorry girl.
That is awful every photographers nightmare, I'm sure... Did you have on a lens hood when it fell? I heard those can help protect the glass if it falls... but at full force, who knows I would be devastated... I'm so sorry.
I hope nothing is wrong with it. KUP.

Oh sweetie, I am so so so so so sorry! I am glad you are okay, but so sorry about your lens. I had the same thing happen to a 70-200 2.8 when I was shooting the Jonas Brothers concert and got trampled by insane teens 3 days after getting it. I hope that you find a new lens. Maybe you can get a 50mm since they are cheap but yet wonderful at the same time! I hope something coms up soon, I'll miss seeing your photos!
