So after spending a good chunk of the day driving all over town shooting outside in 93+ degree temperatures, I pulled into our garage exhausted and ready for a cold drink and some AC. While unloading the gear from my car, I hadn’t noticed that I had left the main zipper open on my camera bag that holds all my lenses. I went to swing it onto my shoulder when…..
I heard a whooshing sound, then silence that seemed to last forever, and then a horrible THUD accompanied by a loud CRACK. Oh no! My BEST and most expensive lens! Glass shattered and it rolled underneath the car. After some expletives, I gingerly reached down and picked it up just knowing it was going to be a disaster. But wait! Yes! I have a clear glass UV filter on to protect it and….yes! It looks like it’s just the filter that is shattered!
I’ve since cleaned all the glass out but the UV filter is stuck and won’t come off! Closer inspection shows it’s slightly bent. Looks like I’ll be taking it to a camera repair shop… =(
