Re: I dropped my GFX 100 Today in Iceland with the 23 mounted!

Sh!t happens.

It always happens.

My prized nIkkor 180/2.8 dropped out of my camera bag just inches from my hardwood floor in my office at home because I had not zipped the bag up after taking another lens out and standing the bag up. Bent and mangled the filter threads. The lens does not appear to have become decentered.

I never fail to zip the bag up. But I did that time.

And it happened in the quiet of my home. Without any stress.

In situations like you describe, it's amazing more equipment doesn't get damaged or even destroyed. (Actually, it does!)

Don't rush too much.
