    I bumped it as I was getting my iPad out of my bag and it fell off the coffee table. The coffee table's not high (about 1.5-2ft) and it was in its bag (the big one they give you in the box) but it was onto the tile. Is there anything I can do to check it out? I'm sure it's fine but I am still a bit paranoid.

    My first suggestion is to put it on your camera and see if everything works like normal. Also check the mounting plate and see if anything rattles internally.

    That is a very hearty lens and it should be able to take a moderate hit being "PRO" and all.

    Here's hoping nothing is damaged. :2thumbs:

    I agree with Rob, Likely not a problem for a lens like this.

    I would do some test shots of on some controlled target like a flat brick wall where the whole plane will be in focus.

    Thanks guys, just measured with a tape measure, the drop was less than 1.5ft and it landed on its side so the bag and lens hood would've taken most of the brunt. Just did a few shots around my house, I don't really have a solid texture I can shoot against at the moment, but it focuses completely fine.
