A few days ago when I was out driving in search of ghost signs (pix in a different thread), I had both my black X-E2 cameras at the ready on the passenger seat. Many Madison drivers are not exactly courteous. I was in the left lane on a two-lane one way street because I noticed the right lane was closed ahead for repair. In spite of the advance MERGE LEFT sign (with flashing arrows too), at the last second the impatient and downright prickish driver to my right gunned it to get in front of me, forcing me to tromp the brakes hard (yes, there was screeching of tires). Both cameras literally launched off the seat and landed on the floor, hard… seriously, they both took a pretty good hit. And they didn’t land on soft carpet either… I have those hard plastic WeatherTech floor mats. After some loud and quite “colorful” language, I stopped for a very close inspection of the cameras and lenses/mounts. One body was fitted with the XF100-400, so I was especially worried about that, and the other body had the XF55-200, another favorite lens. Well, I couldn’t find even a scratch or nick anywhere on either body or lens (both lenses had hoods on them, which stayed in place). Subsequently, I stopped for photos with both cameras, and looking at the images very closely on the computer, I find nothing wrong. While I hate that this happened, in the end, I must say I am thankful for Fuji build quality!
