I had the lens, 17-55/2.8, fallen off a Teleconverter adapter on DSLR the other day. Ouch, it hurts. It is going to be about $400 to repair the jammed zoom ring as a result.

Upon examining how this happened, I found out the latch on typical TC can be easily and accidentally unlatched when you are trying to hold a heavy attached lens, like most of fast zooms.

Is there anyone out there run into the same situation? What could be done to prevent it from happening besides handling with more care?
