Re: Dropped gx8 + oly 9-18 onto concrete !

A bit off topic but I once dropped a new Pen-F on to concrete. I had put a cheap wrist strap on it, and it came undone, so when my arm went down, the camera dropped from around knee height. A dent in the baseplate and no other visible damage. However, the screen did not work. It was as though something was disconnected. But it was a surprise how well it survived.

I returned it to Olympus, saying I expected to have to pay for the repair, though I was disappointed that it could not survive falling just a couple of feet. To my surprise, it was treated as a warranty repair and they never charged me. But I decided it was worth investing in a Peak Design wrist strap, which would be more reliable, and the one that had failed was thrown out.
