Sorry to hear but I wouldn't store a lens face down on a lens hood which only has partial surface contact with the shelf personally. But each to their own. Good luck.

A few hours too late with that advice.

I'm not sure if I understand mrgs1 correctly, but there's definitely more surface contact face down than face up with 58G.

I think he was referring to the reduced surface area in contact with the table when the lens is placed hood-down. It's true that hood-down gives a bigger, more stable base, but the deciding factor in this accident may have been the amount of static friction between the lens and the table.

Or not; it's hard to say.
