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.

Damn. Condolences. Still, look on the bright side, at least the gear you broke should be readily replaceable, and it wasn't a terribly expensive lens.
