After 18 months of faithful service, my Canon Digital Rebel XT kit lens was failing. Error 99 messages were appearing with increasing frequency, and requiring a camera restart. This was not helpful when shooting spit-second happenings. Like, say, fireground action. Ordered another on eBay. The replacement has been error-free since Friday, and passed Saturday's event with flying colors. What to do with the old lens? Smash it, of course. The glass from the lens has yet to be found, but everything flew only a few feet. No humans were harmed in the making of this blog post. That is, not counting lost brain cells.

I have on of these lens, not much different smashed or working. Other Canon lenses much better than kit lens.
