It's official. My 18-55mm lense is currently hurt. On Saturday, I took the camera out thinking that it was bruised, but not broken. After a few zoom ins and zoom outs and the lense seemed like it was getting tighter and tighter. Then I was longer able to zoom in or out. I took the lens off of the camera base and there was a piece just floating around all loose. My heart broke.
If it cannot be fixed, I'll have to get a new one. Luckily the 18-55mm is not one of the outrageously expensive lenses.
I felt withdrawal because I didn't have any cameras around and my fingers were itching to click away.
