Breaking equipment isn't an easy thing to do, but it can happen. For me the most dangerous time is when I'm trying to change lenses out in the field. I've dropped my camera or a lens several times doing this, as a result I simply try to avoid doing it.
I have a perfect solution to this - Think Tank lens changers , you need one for each lens, so the lens you are removing, can be put safely away, before you take another one out . They will also protect your lens hoods. Worried about protecting your lens changer , they come with a built in rain cover
