Yesterday I got the word that it was uneconomical to repair the lens. Am I going to replace it? Yes. Can I afford to? Not really. Can I afford not to? Oh that is a tough question. I guess I can but it would be a pretty big step back as far as I am concerned. Am I going to get protection against accidental damage this time? Absolutely! If you aren't into photography you might not get how awful I have felt. I bet a lot of photographers wouldn't get it. It is important to me though.
Around the time it happened I posted on facebook "They say Kharma is a bitch, or life or something. What ever it is I seem to have done enough stupid things in my life that I am never going to stop paying for it." I still believe that but for now I guess I will just pick up the pieces and carry on.
