    Unhappy Need help asap

    So this happened today... I have no idea if this is fixable at all. ANY feedback would be great. Im currently a photography student, freelance photographer and also working on the side as a baby photographer for a company. I NEED this lens in my life. If it is fixable, can I fix it on my own? Or do I have to send it in to get fixed. If thats the case, could anyone please give me a rough estimate of how much it might be. This lens is a nikon 24-70mm 2.8. PLEASE HELP ME IM FREAKING OUT.

    I'd youtube for some help. Your profile doesn't give your location, but I'd also contact Nikon service to check on repair. You might consider filling out your profile. Good luck.

    Welcome to the forum. What Jim said^^^. It looks like some pieces are broken (PLASTIC) that hold the two pieces together, but I am only guessing from you photos.

    You have certainly lost electrical connection so it will need to go to Nikon.

    Welcome to the forum. Sorry this is what brought you here. With the separation of the electrical connections this will be a Nikon repair. Sorry, but I watched just a few minutes of a repair video and there are several connection that seem to have been damaged in your lens.

    I am sure the lens is fixable, just a question of how much.

    Also, from your pictures, the lens was on your D800 when it was broken. So how was the lens broken. If both were dropped, impacted, etc. you really need to get your camera checked out as well.
    I agree. Sounds like an insurance claim and a package being shipped to Nikon is in your future.
    You do have insurance, right?
