Re: Dropped my Olympus 12mm :-(

If you had access to a wood lathe, I would turn a piece of hardwood to just fit inside of the thread size if it wasn't bent. Then I'd make a flat just enough to go into the lens thread. Then I would put a hose clamp of the (screw to tighten type) with the lens covered with electrical tape on the outside. Put the wood in and carefully rotate back and forth till the dent is worked out.

That's what I'd do. How long did it take till you stopped crying? I'm tearing up just thinking about it.

Good luck,
