Ouch! I hope your lens is still working alright. I've got friends dropping their lens with no functional damage incurred, just some scratches. I've also got friends who dropped their lenses and ended up with faults like AF problems, and cracked lens elements. There no way to predict whats going to fail or if its just going to be ok. :)

If unsure bring it to Service Center. But of course, clumsiness is chargeable :)

Seems like it's fairly low and shouldn't (I use that word with much trepidation :bsmilie:) be an issue.

but such things are really heng-suay...
I hope everything is ok.

Visual inspection?
Mount on camera and test?

hope your lens is alright.

guess you can only know when you mount it, do some AF, take a few shots, see if the focusing is still ok.

Good luck!

Dropped my Nikkor 18-55 once and it far to scary for me to dropped it again

You got to bring it to a service center if you want to check the Inside of the lens and maybe ask for a Repair

My Lens survived the drop when i was changing Lens while standing up with My Nikon Given Camera Bag as Improvised Table

I dropped my 50/1.4 from 1.5m to the marble floor, no issues whatsoever ...
YMMV ...

guess u have to mount it and do some shoots to see if there's any issue...

once i was changing lens and place my 50 1.8 (canon) on the floor next to me, this guy walk by and accidentally kick it... it tumble and roll and bounce about 2 metres... and despite the less than ideal construction of canon 50 1.8, it still works perfectly. :D

You have to check for focusing problems or small scratches or cracks. If so, you can bring the lens for repair.
