Hi Jon

Very sorry to hear of you and your D3 and tele. I guess the gear is just not meant to be dropped. As I was headed for the ground all I could think was....Oh...not my D4... !! I
was not thinking about myself which was pretty dumb. Reflection on the fall after I picked myself up and dusted myself off I realized that the table that I just barely missed could have
put a fairly major dent in my skull. Funny how we are with our gear. I tend to worry more about the gear than myself which is not too bright. The bottom line is that the gear can be fixed but in some cases our bodies just might not be so easily fixed. I am definitely a bit more circumspect about such things after this experience. After all they still are making these items and if necessary we can go to our local Nikon purveyor and buy a new one. Can't do that with the old body, though....
