Well, not exactly... I dropped my camera a couple of days ago and it landed on the front corner of the 14-150 lens. After a quick check I concluded that everything was oK. But yesterday, I noticed that the UV filter had a a crack at the edge and the filter rim had a dent in it. I tried to remove the filter but could not, regardless of how much force I used - and I used a lot! I put the lens in a plastic bag and placed the front of it in some ice. 5 minutes later I was able to unscrew the filter without much difficulty. So it was good that the lens housing is plastic and the filter rim is aluminum; thank you laws of physics and different co-efficients of expansion! Ironically, I never used to use filters on lenses. The only reason I put them on my OLY lenses is because I don't have hoods for them - why they don't come with hoods like nearly every other lens I have purchased, I cannot fathom but that's a different issue. But in this case it appears that the filter may have saved the lens.
