The other day I dropped my camera bag, just slipped out of my hand and landed, kerplunk, on the floor. I didn’t think anything was hurt but when I took my camera out of the bag this is what I found. Yes I broke the UV filter so had to buy another. Thank goodness it wasn’t the lens as a filter is much less expensive for sure. I had my camera in the bag with this shorter lens on and my charger below the lens so when I dropped the bag the cap was bumped loose by the charger and smashed into the filter. I am glad the filter was there to protect the lens so it goes to show they are a good investment.
No one will ever accuse me of being graceful!
