All, Help! I was packing my bag for a short train trip from Milan to Padua Italy. Had my D5100 carefully stowed in my carry-on luggage. I lifted the bag off the bed and spilled the contents on the floor. My D5100 hit the floor with a thud. The lens cap skittered across the hotel room floor. Here's what happened. The lens thread broke, so the 18-55 mm lens no longer snugly bayonets into place. When I put on another lens, and try to release the shutter, I get an error message that says: "Error Press Shutter Release Button again". And of course the shutter doesn't release.
Can I repair the camera or have I damaged it beyond repair?
DSLR's are a new world for me. I cut my teeth on SLR-35mm cameras that you could get fixed.
