Just knocked over the M100
2

It was on a tripod and it hit the concrete floor hard.

Still works, no damage that I can see. 2 times now my M100 was saved by a SmallRig cage.

Boy was that a good investment !

15-45MM lens seems to be OK too.

You are fortunate. That's great to hear the camera and lens are strongly built.

I rarely drop a camera or lens. Once I did, because the strap to my camera bag broke and it all tumbled to the street. Consequently the inexpensive kit lens would not work properly (camera was OK). Fortunately, it wasn't an expensive loss and I could replace it easily without digging too deep into my pocketbook. Oh, and I did fix that camera strap by replacing the connecting piece with something made of metal (and not plastic like what it was previously).

Ouch !  I have lost count how many times I have dropped cameras. 

Sure is a nice feeling when I hit the power button and it still will turn on.

LUCKY DOG!  Maybe some of it (the cage) was just good practice too!

Glad everything survived.  I had a Ricoh R1 (35mm film) camera bounce out of my shirt pocket once while playing basketball.  No other spills though.  Knock on wood.

I've had a very large and heavy lens from film days roll off the table to it's death. The problem with round lenses. Design flaw I suspect.
