Nikkor 300mm AF-s + 24-70mm in the Zoo

Went to the Zoo the day before yesterday.

Bad start the Nikkon strap of my brand new D700 + 24-70mm came loose and the camera fell on the concrete. The hood got scratched badly and there's a dent in the lower left side of the alluminia camera body. First shot after the fall was black and "Err" showed up in top screen...OH NOOOO!!!!.

So no more Nikkon straps for me anymore, scinse this was not the first time.

The good news: Turned the camera on and off and everything was working normally again. Fwieuw. And, when it have been A D600, the body would probably cracked open.

Credits to "The Tank".

Some shots in the Zoo (Look at the ISO's, quit impressed compared to my retired D80). The most images are cropped to isolate the subjects.
