    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!

    According to the owner:

    "Happened a few years ago at a hockey game. Did a four foot header onto a concrete floor with a 1D Mark 2 attached to it."

    That'd do it, eh.

    Double ouch !
    Hope you do not mind Mongo asking but If he is going to throw it out, can Mongo have it. Mongo does many experiments with optics/equipment and is always on the lookout for glass elements of any brand.

    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 sensor cleaning kit. Last thing you want on your images is for people to comment on dust bunnies

    I can imagine this is what my gear would look like if I ever dropped it while doing climbing shots, guess it's a good thing I always tether it to myself plus using the neck strap!

    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.

    While pro-grade gear is built to a higher standard and is designed to withstand harsher conditions than lower-grade gear, it's definitely not indestructible.

    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.
