My goof involved a Canon.  I was in Valparaiso on vacation - a long way from home - when my 50mm 1.4 rolled off a countertop and fell about 3 feet to the floor.  The AF was toast, but the lens still worked with manual focus.  That was pure luck, because I was on an all prime kick at the moment and otherwise everything would have had that wide-angle look. My memory was that the repair cost about 2/3 of the value of the lens. My lesson - insurance - both money type and lens (an all-purpose zoom goes everywhere with me now).
