Re: Durability of the NEX models??

I dropped my NEX-5 with the 16 mm lens about 30 m (100 ft) onto grass and it survived. The ground was damp which probably helped. It hit lens first and I think the lens hood helped preventing damage to the lens. Obviously it would not have survived a fall like that onto rock or concrete.

I have also seen small dents on a kit zoom and agree they don't look great, but it still worked ok.
