Iíve seen a lot of smashed filters, but never thought itíll happen to me. The silly camera bag strap broke while i was walking, and the whole bag just dropped onto the concrete ground. I thought it was OK till i took out the camera at home, saw glass bits and went oh ****.
The lens cap bent in, cracking the insanely expensive $110 B+W filter I had since day 1. I donít know if any tiny glass bits got into the lens. No grinding sounds while zooming, so should be good i hope xD. 3 tiny marks on the outer glass of the lens now. Resale value drop! Noooo~
Was using a lowepro aw30 shoulder bag. The plastic buckle on the strap eventually comes loose when you put really heavy stuff inside. Like heavy camera, heavy lens + flash. Be wary.
