This is my first attempt to enter information on this site in maybe 10 years. I have never tried to enter a photo and I'm not highly motivated to try to learn how to do it. Frankly I have been amazed at the people who have attacked my veracity. What possible moitive would I have to try to mislead? Maybe Wednesday I will fire up the 105 macro on the D-700 and try and take the pix of the opening under the lens on the D-800 but I don't plan to spend much time trying to figure out how to post it to weird people who challenge my veracity or motives. Really I don't give a damn if people believe me, my whole thought was to save others from similar event. I am amazed at the attitude of some of the people here.

Message for the doubters. You're right! I dreamed up the whole thing and tried to make fools of all of you but you clever people saw through my effort. Damn, you are really clever even those of you who don't know how to use the english language. Have a nice holiday!


Ah. Don´t mind those people. Just ignore them. Protection by anonymity brings up the worst in some. Its Internet of today.

Whatever the cause of the incident was, you have made people think about a possible problem, and you might have saved someone (maybe me) a lot of dollars. Thanks a lot for that. I never use a strap in that way, but often carry the camera on tripod for hours. I would hate it if I had to dismount it for every time I moved. So I will keep an eye on things.
