Late last year my camera had an unfortunate accident: the camera landed lens down, from a height of about 3 feet, onto carpeting.  The end result was a camera that was still fine, but a kit lens (18-55mm f/3.5-5.6) that was pretty well thrashed inside (rattled inside, couldn’t zoom, etc).  Thankfully, I purchased Ritz Camera’s protection plan, which even covers accidents.  The downside, is that they have a 3-7 week turnaround time (now, why it would take even three weeks for them to look at, and say, yep we can’t fix it, here’s a new one, is beyond me).  Sadly, this happened before Christmas, and thus, I missed out on a lot of holiday pictures.  There is some good news though.  I have about a week before it comes in according to the shop.  So all that there is left to do is wait just a bit longer.  For those interested, if the shop follows through with that date, it will have been a 5 week turnaround time, which I guess isn’t too bad considering all the holidays.
