Please share your own lens killing experience so I can feel a little better

Cheers...

Here it is: dropped my D3s with 35 1.4G on concrete. D3s cracked open: the top had a 3cm long, 1mm wide crack! 1200$ repair job, including changing a bent lens mount.
Miraculously, the 35 didn't suffer at all, just the (mandatory) lens shade getting scratched a little, and it's kept on ticking perfectly (well... as erratically as before! ) for the last 6 months.

As others have pointed out: insurance goes a long way when you're dealing with expensive equipment and unfathomable events...
