    Slipped out of my hands and landed on a hard floor...





















    NO DAMAGE :wiggle:

    nothing cracked, lens works fine.... i have the Ritz Camera damage warranty, but still, that would have sucked.

    so this thread is for everyone who thinks the 1.8 (nikon) is cheap and not durable

    i accidentally did that w/ mine also (mines a canon) which being all plastic scared the crap out of me. fell out of my bag onto a tile floor from about 2.5 feet up. Bounced around a bit but was fine when i picked it up and threw it on my camera.

    i was pleasantly surprised :hsd:

    Nah, it was an accident. I was pissed when it happened because I was in the middle of a shoot and needed the lens, but eventually I was able to forgive her. :bigthumb:
