sun rise

In the wedding of Catherine & Stephen yesterday, there was an accident. It was so careless of me that I dropped my Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8 IS lens to the ground from the top of a piano (I believe it was over 1 meter) . After that, I stopped using it in the banquet and I am afraid there may be problem in the optics.

The 1st thing I woke up this morning was putting up the lens and taking some test shot outside the window. It was 5:45 am in the morning, and the sun was rising in front of me … … What a beautiful view !!!

It seems that the lens is OK, but I ‘ll take it back to Canon for checking on Monday.

(update 27 June, 2006) Canon staff called me this morning, and told me everything is OK. Just need to replace the hotshoe of the flash.

    Only dropped the len?  Not with the body?  Your 70-200mm seem not need to be removed from your 30D!
    BTW, you buy a fisheye len?

  3. Hi Kevin,
    In fact, I dropped the lens together with 20D and flash … …
    The mount of the flash was broken and couldn’t be mounted on the camera any more. Luckily, I had brought the ST-E2  that night (speedlite transmitter), and could trigger the flash remotely. Esther helped me to hand hold the flash whole night.

    Oh!  It really a nightmare.  However, as from the post of Catherine and Stephen wedding, you still took great photos even equipment was broken, really professional!

    I just too busy and don’t have chance to pick up my camera almost two months, too bad!
