These Lenses were destroyed by an Angry Girlfriend

So my previous article talks about all the things that can have a damaging effect to your camera. Among others, these are dust, seawater, and humid air. But besides all of that, do you know what entity can cause a much greater, no-mercy damage to camera? That wrathful entity would be an angry girlfriend.

This Hong Kong-based photographer has met this most unfortunate of fates. One day, he had a huge fight with his girlfriend (though the reason wasn’t clearly explained). In the heat of the fight, the angry girlfriend brutally destroyed his camera’s lenses. You would think that throwing them would be horrible enough, but this girlfriend went to the next level by using a screwdriver to bash into the front and back end of the lens glass. She really knew what she was doing and knows where to hit for that fatal blow. The lenses were then irreparable and useless.

Here’s the list of all the victims of this particular angry girlfriend and photos as proof of the massacre:

Nikkor 28-70 f2.8D, Tokina 28-70 F2.6-2.8, Nikkor 80-200 f2.8D, Nikkor 17-35 F2.8D, and a Nikon TC-20E teleconverter

So for you photographer out there, be it male or female, love your significant others as you would your hobby and your camera! Because if a lover’s storm ever stirs into your relationship, you may be hit where it would hurt most… your beloved photography tools. Can you imagine what your world will be like then?

    While he didn’t bash my lenses, my (now) ex husband actually held my camera and lenses hostage. I told him that I wasn’t coming home, and he took it. He actually hid it in his attic! I had to fight with him for over a month to get it back! I figured it would be destroyed or at least damaged…and he DID throw the bag at my car, I have a wonderful bag! I’m thankful that I have never had an angry girlfriend though. Women can be ruthless!!! 😉
