Geez man, you just have to keep an eye on kids... Fortunately it dropped less than a meter into tiles, but enough to dent my 50mm filter thread and nothing more it seems - at least not on the surface.

Any idea how much to replace the front thread of the 50mm? How well can a DSLR COMPLETELY survive a 1m fall? (I've had my car bumped with no visible damage, but only to find out stuff conking out one by one later.) I'm just worried that there may be internal injury... Any advice on how to treat such cases?

CHEERS!
