I wasn't going to post this, but I figure you guys will all understand!! On Sunday we came home from grocery shopping. I just had taken so really cute horse photos (the new babies were out for the first time!!) I was balancing the camera and two lenses and myself getting out of the car when something slipped. Oh crap was my first thought, then it hit the ground (our garage is cement) and the shattering sound crushed me to my very soul! Oh no, what just broke?!?!?! I looked and saw the 12-50 roll under the car. I grabbed it and looked. Nothing. There are three tiny scratches by where the cap clips on that's it! The shattering noise was the cap breaking! WHAT?!?!?! The cap!? The little plastic Olympus cover broke off. I put the lens on the camera and shot in all modes, MF, Macro, etc... and it was great! No weird shuttering no noises nothing. I've never felt such relief! We glued the cover on the cap and all is well. sure this was only maybe a 2' drop, but holy cow I though it was done for! Olympus makes pretty tough stuff! Even a cheaper kit lens can handle a bit of a bump with only a couple small scratches. Just lucky it didn't scratch the element!
