In accordance with the “Break Important Things” act of 2008, I’ve now subjected two important items in my life to destructive activities. First the car, now the main lens for my camera.
I was on a site visit for work and I dropped the camera coming out of my car. Now it won’t focus past about 2 meters. You can see in the image the maximum extent of the focus, marked by the little white tick mark next to the distance window pane. Even manually focusing, it won’t go past that point therefore lens = broken. Alas.
It’s now on it’s way to the Sigma repair center in New York. Hopefully it won’t be gone too long.
