    Got my 35mm f/2.0 today for my T1i, went to the park to test it out, slipped on a sheet of ice, fall lens first into the pavement. :thumbdown::thumbdown::thumbdown:
    When I got up and looked at my camera, the UV filter was shattered and there was a chunk of plastic chipped off of my battery grip. I was, of course, majorly pissed. Of course the ice was nearly invisible (black ice):x. I guess it could be worse though as my camera still works. The lens on the other hand is a paper weight at this point (wont work at all). I will have to sing my "happy song" until the shock wears off. :lol:

    roughly $300. At least it wasn't the 35mm f/1.4 L lens which costs about $1300. :lol:

    That does suck! You might buy a lens hood too. It's not just for lens flares.....

    If you don't have your camera specifically insured, homeowners insurance may cover the damage... though there is often a deductible.

    Sorry to hear it, though. :(

    Damn, that sucks... Did you get to use it at all before it broke?

    Just hope that the deductible isn't more than the cost of the lens...

    ****ty to hear...

    I would look into Camera insurance, I have my body an lenses insured for full replacement, for just a couple bucks a month. Definitely worth it and something to think about.
