3 to 6 weeks

So I have bad news. One of my lenses for my Nikon D40 seems to be dead. It's under warranty, but it will take 3 - 6 weeks for the camera and lens to go and come back. That's right, I have to send the camera too. I just hope I get it back in time for our trip to Ottawa this summer. I feel a little like a friend is leaving for a vacation.

The other thing about the whole affair is we have to drive into the city. A 3 hour drive, oh well, some good quality time, maybe I'll make Tara drive and just take pictures with my other lens the entire way, I wonder how many pictures I could snap in a 3 hour drive at 2.5 pictures a second... (some of you have figured that out already), what would all those pictures look like in a collage? How big would that file be?!
We should get to see my brother and his wife though, I'm pumped to see him again.

Hope you have a wonderful Victoria day... I'm off to bed to get ready for it.

I know how it feels to have your equipment in the shop. My camera has been in the shop since May 4th and I just got an email saying that they still don't know what's wrong with it. And this is the third time is been to Nikon headquarters . Ah well - I keep trying to tell myself "it's just a thing, not worth getting all riled up over a thing".

Which lens is down?

Take the time to explore your other lenses. Take your camera out with only one lens. It'll be a growing experience ;)
