Broke my Nikon 18-105 VR lens

Filed under: by: Daniel Burkhead

Well, it was bound to happen....I left my camera bag sitting on the studio stool after a photo session last Sunday. One of the little kids (my kids :( ) knocked it off of the stool and WHAM!!!  The lens was snapped off the camera body. For those of you that aren't familiar with Nikon lenses, this is one that has a plastic mount.

This lens is the lens I use 90% of the time, so it was quite a disappointment to have it out of commission.

After doing some research, I ran across GMTruckHQ, which had a well written HOW-TO on replacing this piece. So, after ordering the correct part (# IC999-729-1) for mine, it's fixed!

Here's a few shots of my lens (GMTruckHQ has great pics)
