Guy Has Nikon Lenses Smashed by His Angry Girlfriend After Fight

An unfortunate photo-lover in Hong Kong recently got into a fight with his girlfriend, who proceeded to smash his beautiful collection of Nikon lenses. Among the casualties were a 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.

Apparently the girlfriend knows a thing or two about destroying lenses — not satisfied with marring the lenses cosmetically, she shattered the front and rear lens elements as well!

He posted some other photographs of his destroyed gear to this DCHome forum thread (it’s in Chinese).

    Wow.  Bitter much?  Way to make it an anti-male thread instead.

    …You’re taking that comment personally and completely out of context. He is obviously referring to this post…not the entire population of women. No one is being sexist here so there is no need for a defensive remark.

    I completely agree. This shit is fucked up! I would wreck that bitches car and roll it into a ditch!

    Really? You’re telling me you have NEVER seen a psycho bitch before? Honestly…who gives a fuck if it was her fault OR his fault…you should NEVER cause over 3k+ in damage of someone elses property just because they cheated on you or whatever the problem is. If he “laid a hand on her” than call the damn cops, don’t go crazy and piss him off more by smashing his precious lenses.

    You do realize there are such a thing called “model” photographers…right? Instead of working 8 hours a day in a cubicle, I can take a camera and take pictures of women in bikinis or “artistic” nude pictures. Btw, they’re skinny because they’re always out taking photos trying to improve instead of wasting time picking heaving things up and putting them back down over and over.

    Maybe she bought those lenses herself.

    All that I can objectively say is what a loss it was.

    Who knows the cause. I have expensive lenses, too, and I make sure to keep them in a safe place. By the same token, it says to me that he doesn’t know her all that well that, on one hand he’d has a person in his life who has anger issues, and on the other hand he has expensive equipment. Seems to me that between one hand and the other, something has to give. Real important to understand the person you pick in an environment where you have valuables. But some folks go for the looks and don’t care about their insides until something like this happens. I’m not saying that he did not cause her reaction, but who knows? I say assess BEFORE he or she moves in.

    Regardless of who did what first, it is not right to destroy somebody’s property in retaliation. That is childish and to think otherwise proves you to think like a child.
