Samsung NX 16-50 power zoom lens Drop - Did a miracle just happened?
2

Hi,

My Samsung NX 16-50 power zoom lens dropped to the street floor yesterday. It drooped on a Cement Concrete Road with a big bang, becaused I had it on the top of my camera, when I took it from my camera bag. The lens was in fact almost thrown from my bag... ups! And fell down from a big height.

Now It has a massive scratch/blow, near the manual focus ring. I tried to put on my camera, and it said Error 001, or something like that. I was in shocked and very sad :(. Then, I move the manual focus, and tried it again on my camera. By some sort of a miracle it worked. Everything seems fine, the Auto Focus, the Power zoom, etc. Should I still be worried?

My God, if I got away from this with the lens turning out to be ok, then Samsung gear is really the best. How can it still be working?

Thanks

Miracles happen!

My father's old Yashica EE got to where the shutter wouldn't fire. I was messing with it one day and  dropped it. It's been working perfectly since!
