Re: 400 2.8 IS II so light but so fragile

The new mark II lens is as solid as the previous model but it won't take being banged off something hard or dropped - no lens will. The lens hood is made from carbon fibre - same as the old model. This isn't a warranty repair because it's clearly abuse (in whatever form that happened). If the photographer has the lens insured against all risks then claim on the insurance for accidental damage.
