Do NOT try this at home - Graphic Images....
Apr 23, 2010

This is what can happen when the trusty strap on your 22kg ( 48.4 lbs ) camera bag finally lets go at the swivel bit

A700 with Minolta 80-200 2.8 SSM lens hits the concrete path below and snaps the lens of the body cleanly at the mount ( see the closeup image )

Camera / Lens currently undergoing repairs

I'm now in therapy.....

Regards, Stu
