    Well the bad news is Nikons Nikkor kit lenses have $hitty mounts made of plastic.... broke mine last night with not much of a bump.

    The good news, after expecting to have to buy an all new lens, I did some googleing and found the piece to be replacable.

    The even gooder news.... Nikon customer service was awesome, super friendly and fully of help (which is hard to come by with today's customer service reps), and the mount is being sent to me for under $20.

    One part of me wishes the mount was made of metal, but the other part of me is glad that a $15 replaceable part broke instead of the glass or the camera body.
