So guess what happened. I was out at the local wildlife refuge, when I stumbled in a hole on the main road and went down with my Gitzo tripod on my shoulder. It kind of turned in around me and I ended up landing on the legs, broke one clear off, and proceeded to fall.

That is the good news. My F5, 2x teleconverter and 80-200 AFR f/2.8 went down with me. Whack. So far, all I can tell is that the mounting ring on the lens is bent, but so is the mount on the F5. I assume the teleconverter is not exempt.

So they tell me in this area, that the camera needs to go to Chandler, Arizona for 6-8 weeks. Any better ideas in the Seattle area?

I am going to need a 2-foot by 2-foot square block of foam, to put on the camera from now on. GEEZ, what a run of luck. The bottom line is that I was looking up, searching for Great Horned Owls, did not see any, and did not see the hole in the road, either.

Anybody have an extra $1K note sitting around?
