    I just had a sb600 and a 35-70 2.8 afd on a d200 which was knocked off a table onto a cement floor. Camera and lens came through unscathed but the lens hood got bent and the flash shattered at the foot. I was not real happy about it but what the hey - accidents happen.

    Ouch! I feel bad for you. The SB-600s aren't cheap. At least we can feel relief that the D200 (and D300) bodies are indeed built solid.

    Hey, that's what lens hoods are for. What broke on the flash? I Know on
    Canons you can get just the replacement foot if it breaks. Available for Nikon?

    It's a bad break. Little circuit board is broken and the flash head does not bend or rotate any more either. Lucky it wasn't one of my sb800's or one of the Metz's.
