Just dropped by d800e with a sigma 50-500 OS on the front of it onto a tiled floor

The lens has broken at the lens mount into two parts and the camera won't switch on at all. It looks like the viewfinder are took the brunt of the blow as the viewfinder cover has separated at one corner from the body.

hopefully not terminal for lens or camera, but surely expensive

what is amazing is how little damage there is to the body given ht it fell from 4 feet onto clay tiles.

Remember that the IRS allows casualty loss deductions. Not sure what the rules are any more, but worth checking.

Dropped a lens once. Taught me an expensive lesson.
