My wife dropped ours inside a Starbucks 20 hours after we got married as we were driving to the airport for our honeymoon..... lens hit the floor as it was turning on.
Needless to say we hit BestBuy on the way to the airport.
After we got back I actually got it working again. I sat there and tried to time the lense as it was trying to extend and got stuck. Small taps and lots of patience.... I couldn't believe I got it working again .......... there's a will there's a way!
