Canon ef 20-200 2.8 is usm failed
Feb 5, 2010

I could have just fainted when I saw this. Was a little too careless with my camera bag a few days ago. I did not know any damage occurred to the lens from my carelessness. I saw this moments before a stage play that I was asked to shoot. After prying the darn thing off I realized the VALUE of this UV filter. The lens itself was without any harm and I was able to use my 70-200 anyway. I've learned countless lessons:
1. Always keep a UV filter on your lens.

2. Check ALL equipment before every job to ensure everything is in working order. (Never again will I make that assumption.)

3. Back up lenses ARE a necessity. Redundancy helps here. (Will be getting some primes of comparable focal lengths to back up if this should ever happen again. )
4. Never dropped your DAMN camera bag. Even at arms length from the ground.

Learn from my mistake!
