Ouch alright....but then again that's Canon for ya!
Seriously tho, that is sad to see a lens looking like that....what happened?
Hmmm, looks like it might have been involved in an accident... if the lens looks like that, I'd hate to see the condition of the photographer!

These cameras belonged to Nikon owners who talked too much, instead of taking photos and useful things......
With respect to the lens:
if he still has it, he can flog it off on ebay as the worlds only TS(Tilt-Shift ) zoom lens.. one of a kind.. prototype.. very rare and valuable... he'd make a killing!
With respect to the camera:
it's a Nikon.. bit of gaffer tape and it'll still work perfectly.. as long as he gives a thorough going over with a copperhill kit. Last thing you want on your images is for people to comment on dust bunnies
LOL!as long as he gives a thorough going over with a copperhillkit
lets turn this into a camera/lens damage thread, I quite like seeing damaged camera equipment actually, not often u get to see the intestines of a camera or lens
Nikon or Not, I'm not one to see the intestines of anything splattered about!
Some of my photo's are at www.peterking.id.au
Made me wince.

Gees, I feel for each and every owner of the pictured gear as well as anyone that has damaged or destroyed gear through an accident.
This thread provides a very useful purpose I reckon.
Even though the manufacturers put a lot of effort into making bodies and lenses tough to resist "working" conditions they simply can't build em like tanks to rule out human destruction.
Scenarios such as the one in which this lens found itself would be considered extreme and not the typical and testing conditions in which the gear would be used.
Sure, some of the L lenses are built like tanks, but extreme impact will see their undoing.
