7D took a little tumble - thoughts?
Jan 3, 2010

Hey all... I am usually extremely careful with my gear and have never really had an 'incident' like this in the past, so I was hoping to get a few opinions...

Dear hubby picked up my new 7D off a fairly low table (coffee-table height), and it jumped out of his hand and took a bit of a tumble to the floor, which had a rug on it, but it whacked once on the table first before rolling across the rug a couple times. I was in SHOCK!! However, it was also dear hubby that got me the camera, so I remained speechless.

My question is - how durable are these bodies and do you think any harm was caused? It seems fine, but I'm still worried. My 50 1.4 was mounted on the body w/ lens hood attached, and from what I can tell it didn't get knocked out of alignment but I suppose more tests are in order...

Thanks in advance...
