96 Hours...

Perhaps the finest lens I've ever had the pleasure of owning and using.

Thanks to a Blackrapid strap who's tripod mounting screw came loose, this beautiful Carl Zeiss Otus is probably going to the scrap heap.  Kudos to Nikon for making their DF as tough as their D4.

The camera survived.  The lens did not.  Although the glass appears to be in fine shape, the focus mechanism no longer works and a lens hood that looks like a parking lot fender bender.

A word to the photography community....
If you use one of those straps where the tripod mount is the secure point.  TIGHTEN the living crap out of it and periodically check to ensure it's on nice and secure.  If not, you too will be crying inside!
