How about one for fun?  This image shows my 5 day old 24-70 getting hit with a practice baseball.  The players are doing a ball handling drill more like hacky sack than baseball.  I'm pretty sure this shot is post hit, and I am pulling away.  Ball definitely hit the UV filter as it left a mark.

The lens is fine.  I'm not sure if the pod took the initial hit.  I am always afraid the UV filter will break and crush broken glass into the front element in a hit like this, but that did not happen.

It's pretty funny but I had wanted to buy a used 24-70 V1 for sports knowing there could be some rough and tumble, but the rebate on VII convinced me that was the way to go.  Still glad I have it, but this was a little scary.

The drill they are doing is interesting.  The ball is a full size baseball, but harder, a little like a cricket ball.  They even had small gloves for the drill as well.  This is in the Puerto Rico Winter League, sort of off season triple A.

Here's a big guy from the Winnipeg zoo. He was roaring a few minutes before I shot this; glad he was behind some glass!

I've been using the new 24-70 2.8ii for shooting indoor sports like b-ball and it works great...fantastic AF speed and very sharp images.
