I got my Nikon D40 today, had a couple of drinks with the lads, played some COD4... and sometime during the game, the camera fell down!! I believe it moved off the table...
Now, the focus ring on the lens is stuck, and the image through the viewfinder is dark.
Has anyone had this happen to their camera before?
The camera is insured for accidental damage... but I did let a mate open up the lens to "see what's wrong"!! -I'm sober enough to know that was very silly. If I report the damage, will they know the lens was opened?
I've broken lots of new stuff before, but this IS the fastest ever!!
Is this worth getting a new lens?
Can the lens be fixed?
Has anyone had a similar experience??
I'm really sorry for having my 1st post be of this nature.... but I'm just confused/angry.
Any input appreciated.
