Jon, Thank you very much for your input. Perhaps I am indeed just over-worrying about it. Just curious though, you say its cheap to fix the plastic mount on the lens if it breaks, any idea how much that is off the top of your head?

~10$ for the part + the labor to take out 3 screws with a Philips screwdriver

Problem is if you applied enough shearing force for the mount to break, you probably have other damage to lens/body including possible damage to zoom/focus/element cenerting

Yet more for the OP to worry about!

Absolutely correct.  If you're going to use your camera as a hammer, then it won't work very well for taking pictures afterwards.  Let's keep this plastic mount thing in perspective.
