Hello all,
on vacation at the moment. Yesterday, I was out and about in a place with some rain. At one point, I was looking for a bird when approaching a board that had been put down in an area with soft base - this was new and seemingly freshly painted, and only too late I discovered it was also extremely slippery. My feet disappeared along the board, and I landed hard on the board - with the camera between my body and the board. The result is that my G85 with PL100-400 still works (seemingly perfectly) and that I have some very sore ribs where they landed on top of the camera. :eek!:
