Sorry to hear ... at least you've got a new lens on the way and a great strap to go with it. I have the black rapid and love it but use a wrist strap for day to day.
I also had a lens mishap during summer vacation ... picked up my camera bag in a dimly lit room thinking my camera was down in the bag but it was just resting on top so the camera and lens hit the hardwood floor and all I heard was the crash ... panic. It was the 55-250 and it shattered the filter and broke the rim to screw on a filter/secure the lens cap ... lens still works but I can no longer cover the glass. No damage to the camera so that was a blessing.
