My 6 year old rushed in to the room while i was transfering images from my nikon d90 he tripped on the usbwire sending the camera on a flight of its life time, just like the mars patfinder it bounced as in slow motion and the lens split from the body upon the third "bounce" never to be firmly attached again :(
a tiny sliver of a plastic that holds the lens in place , chipped off
the camera works when the lens if firmly held in place but the moment u take away your hand .. it falls off .
it has been a sad day in the house today ;) ... he said .. oops , sorry papa ... " you wanna play wii with me ?" :) ...
any idea if plastic bits off of lenses get repaired ?
in my case its the kit lens (18-105) that comes with the d90
