    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

    If you saved any of the paper work that came with it, it might still be under warranty. I would definitely check into it anyway.

    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.

    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!

    Oh, I'm so sorry Cazz!!!! I would be devastated too! I was also thinking what Kelly said--maybe a nifty fifty to tide you over until the lens can be replaced?
