Broken lens

Fell with the lens head down on a flat hard tile :( The UV filter is gone. The lens seems to be okay.. though it makes a little noise while focussing.

And the camera seems to be working with no issues.

 

Still needs to figure out how best to get rid of the filter or atleast the glass remains. (the threads seems to have been damaged.. so it doesnt open the normal way)

Nice day of shoot came to this sad end. Saving grace was this shot (taken from my 55-200) proving that my camera is still doing good :)

 

In another news kartik deprived Sachin Tendulkar of another hundred! :(

 

Update 1: The lens looks alright :) I removed the broken glass pieces using a tong. The filter ring remains.

 

Update 2: Got the filter ring removed at a nikon stall in photofair 2010, mumbai. took a lot of hammering! this lens is sturdy!!
