Back in December I dropped my 3 month old 650d onto the surface of a parking lot while changing lenses.It hit the ground lens throat down and I was mortified. I picked it up expecting to see a shattered mirror etc but it was all intact and not a mark anywhere on the body. Popped a lens on it and it worked flawlessly and has done so ever since.Cameras are a lot tougher than they look thankfully so hopefully yours will be OK as it's had a much softer landing than mine.

Mine landed on carpet, 18 inches fall
