Lens Damage?


Well-known Member

I'm new to the world of SLR, I've had my D3000 since January.

I've been a bit careless and the camera was accidentally dropped, luckily it was in the case.
The only damage came from the lens cover twisting on impact with the floor and pressing into the lens surround.
From the photo, can I assume its just superficial(still takes good photos), or could it have caused unseen damage?http://www.avforums.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=184635&stc=1&d=1276595771

If it's still focusing correctly and the shots look properly exposed and it's not making any unusual noises that it sounds O.K.



Yeah - know what you mean - just count your blessings this time I think - could have taken the camera out too...

I'd also make sure the aperture blades are working fully - choose some very small apertures (F16 or F22) and take some pictures to make sure the aperture blades can stop down properly. Fingers crossed it's all ok!
