Dented camera lens. Not sure if the damage is bad - what to do!
3 months ago

Hi there,

I have unfortunately managed to dent my camera lens around the lens filter whilst I've been away travelling. Pretty annoyed with myself, as I think the camera was damaged whilst in my bag on a greyhound bus (I think it may have gotten squashed/had pressure applied to it). This appears to have missed the glass (just!), but I am unsure what damage this may have done.

I have thoroughly tested the auto-focus/manual focus, zoom etc. and the camera still appears to be functioning okay. The images also appear to still be fine (no perspective/unfocused issues). However, I am still a little concerned!

Have attached a photo below for some viewpoints. It is dented inwards around the 'AFS DX NIKKOR'. I am considering taking this to a camera technician to take a look at also.

Thanks for your help!
