    Default How many knocks/drops have your lenses/camera bodies survived?

    Hi just curious...exactly how durable are lenses and cameras.. feel free to share

    for me...

    Dropped a plasticy-built 55-200mm Nikkor from 2 to 3 feet, hit the floor front-element first. Saved by a lens cap that broke and burried itself into the filter thread. Zero damages, suprisingly no scratches or broken elements. VR worked fine.

    Had dropped my camera before, it landing on the lens barrel and the rim of the barrel got dented. Had it moved 1 or 2mm, my lens would be cracked.

    Think I saw a link somewhere here discussing the resiliency of lenses with regards to their IQ...

    Doesn't mean having it happen to you won't be heartstopping, though. lol
