Re: 35mm 1.4 Durability

I recently dropped my 18mm f2 - a lens from the same stock and of very similar build quality. I've never dropped a lens before in my life and was horrified to watch it fall on what was a pretty hard surface. To my amazement there was no external or internal damage and the lens operates exactly as it did before.

Both lenses are fairly light and sound a bit clunky when focusing, but I suspect they're a fair bit tougher than they seem at first glance. Or maybe I've just been lucky!
