Don't Throw Away That Lens!

Well, if your lens looks as bad as the one above, this probably won't help you any.

However, a more common lens injury appears to be having the lens forcefully removed from the camera without unlocking it.  This can happen for a number of reasons:

  • running into a tree with the camera
  • knocking the camera off a table while playing football in the house
  • trying to force the lens off when it's stuck due to sand lodged in the bayonet mount
  • having the camera smacked away by an irate Sasquatch
