Beautiful and lovely composition.

Was just setting up insurance. Have checked the lens this morning and it won't zoom out to 45, and won't focus at 28 - 30. Will happily focus and shoot between 30 and 40mm

Really sorry to hear this has happened to you . I know I would feel hollowed out if the same happened to me. I'm between insurances as of Friday, and that way go I but for the grace.Currently finding it hard to get any reasonable quotes now I'm a 645Z and 28-45mm owner. I hope that your 28-45 is repairable at a reasonable cost.

I have most of my insurances with Hiscox. Home and car insurance. Not the cheapest but very comprehensive. The end of the lens that provides when you focus is loose if if it is held pointing down. Push it back in and the lens works fine from 28 to 41. I have trips to Venice and New York coming up so may leave it until after them to send it off.

this is the first shot i actually took after taking the camera out of the box :P my wife was quite patient seeing all the excitement
I feel there is a difference in the image rendering as compared to 35mm which i'm mostly used to .. specially the highlights and the shadows details

When I worked with various insurance companies, around 7 years ago, Hiscox were the best of the best, far more reasonable to deal with and really focussed on customer satisfaction. That bodes well, but lens repairs can take a while so I'd send it off now for a quote ASAP, as you'll need that for the insurance.

Thing is insurance isn't in place as of yet. Was still putting a list together to send to my broker. Much of my gear is top end so needs to be tailored, and I'm terrible at getting around to things - so not getting around to this will set me back bit of money.

A couple more with the Z. First is with the HD 90mm macro the second with the HD 28-45mm. It is a composite of 2 images one the sky and mid ground right and left of the castle, the other the foreground and the castle gently light painted with a very dim LED torch form a significant distance away. A bit of fun really.
