    Well, 10 or so years of photography and I've had my first casualty of the game.. I'm usually quite careful with my equipment, but I was rushed and didn't properly pad my camera in a water tight bag when taking it out on my jetski to go Bald Eagle shooting up in the north woods of Wisconsin. A couple big waves crashing into the hull, and that's all she wrote..

    Already have my Nikon repair order submitted but I'm reeeeaaalllly hoping it comes in under the $350 estimate. At least everything else still works, just a busted screen. I also still have my D800 with me, but my eagle shooting is probably over for the trip...

    Bummer. Yeah, **** happens, but no body's happy about it. Hope it's not too costly.

    I dropped my 5d with my Sigma 150-600 Sports lens last month. It landed on the hood of the lens. Just broke the screw that fastens the hood to the lens. I have the accident insurance on it and it didn't cost me a thing for the repair.
