Tuesday was not a good day for me. It may yet turn out to have been an expensive one too.
I dropped my camera !!!
It landed right on the end of the lens. Although the lens cap was on, the Skylight filter was smashed.
It actually took me a while to get the lens cap off to discover the broken filter. Now I am wondering if the lens mechanism is damaged. It seems to be working but who knows how the optics are working. I have cleaned out the broken glass but have found it impossible to remove the actual filter ring.
This is bad news as it indicates that the filter thread on the lens is damaged and this will prevent the fitting of any other filters.
I will be looking into claiming on my insurance but cannot remember if we specifically mentioned camera gear.
