michaelk42 asked: (I couldn't find your ask link on your page so I just stuck an /ask on the end of your Tumblr URL) What lens was it? I once used a 28/2.8 so much it literally came apart in my hand as I was focusing it. I nearly wept.
(Thank you! Yes, the way to ask me a question is to do that. I’ll go edit the initial post to include that. Dur.)
The lens that has just busted on me is this glorious thing: http://www.amazon.com/SMC-Pentax-FA-50mm-1-4/dp/B00005ABC5
I am heartbroken and too broke to replace it. It’d already had the plastic all cracked with bits missing so it can’t hold a lenscap, but I loved the low light and depth of focus and sharpness and creaminess and OH I am SO SAD! I love my Pentax for being such a tank (for I am rather clumsy), but my lenses pay the price.
