One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

I dropped my camera on the tile floor.  Cry

The UV filter shattered and the short (18-55) lens is jammed
at 20mm, but still works, even with the strobe.

I'm shocked the camera still works.

The camera landed on the front of the lens cap and the lens
zoom mechanism must have taken most of the impact.

Refurb VR lens is about $100.

I am bummed, but still taking pictures.

Thanks a bunch, John. One question: any sign of a Premier Widow with new graphics?

It's a sad story involving an unzipped, but closed camera bag sitting on a shelf.

Oh, and a sad man who forgot it was still unzipped.

Bummer about the lens. Honestly though, it's amazing these accidents don't happen more often. Camera equipment is pretty darned sturdy on the whole. Thanks for the photos- am loving some of those new delta slks.

That's even worse, when one knows one could have prevented the accident. I tend to beat myself up over mistakes like that!

Yes we demand need want more pictures! If you have to invest in a new lens then Bambi just needs to understand that.
IF you have a 'real' camera shop near you they may be able to fix it

Real camera repairmen are really hard to find.  Seattle's best camera shop sends all their cameras out to the manufacture for repairs.  I recently sent a Canon G10 to my son in Tokyo, who in turn took it directly to a Canon repair store - they do have them in Tokyo.  The cost was around $110 to have the sensor replaced, not just cleaned.  Seattle's only "Camera Repairman" wanted $450 do clean it.
It's a tough process to decide.  I'm luck to have a Tokyo outlet.
