Dropped my Voigtlander 17.5mm a year ago, but it's still excellent.

    A dropped lens just adds character (says the guy who baby's his gear like his own flesh and blood :p :D )!

    Great shots and that 17.5mm renders beautifully!

    Nice images, the lens doesn't seemed to have suffered as a result.

    I'd love a Voigtlander 17.5 myself, it's just the wife I have to convince. And to make matters worse, she wants pictures for the walls, random strangers on the street don't cut it for her :)

    That's the worst! My wife and I have compromised with landscapes. ;) 

    I should add, for purposes that are purely about self-promotion, this particular lens is up for sale on the Buy-Sell forums (https://www.mu-43.com/posts/800138/). I was gathering full-size images together when I came across these two and thought they'd look good in the Hi-Res forum.

    i dropped my 17.5 on pavement, and cracked the lens cover. Lens works great. I dropped my cv 25 on a ceramic tile floor and it sounded like breaking glass - but it was just the brass lens filter. Lens works great I'm twisting and turning about the 42.5 or maybe the kowa 8.5.
