Re: Broke my first lens yesterday :(

I dropped my  105 macro too -   while changing lenses. A drop of about 3 feet.

When I tried it on my camera it worked fine, for a while. Then while changing to another lens, I heard a rattle from the 105. When I looked through it, all the aperture blades had broken off and were rattling around.

I left it in for repair in my local dealer Bermingham Cameras and got it back in two weeks. It cost €298. I was prepared to pay up to €400 for it, as the lens costs €839 here in Dublin.

It is as good as new now. Best of luck with yours!  D.
