24-70 GM broke snapped mount

Well I went over on my ankle fell like a sack of spuds...

Camera was in bag and I quickly got up thinking everything was ok apart from ankle..

Checked bag and lens had snapped off A7r3 lens mount......

FYI I sent for repair through house insurance thinking it was expensive, quoted me yesterday £42.00

What I noticed is its all plastic inside lens mount ... either its a cost saving thing, or a failsafe point to stop you yanking off the camera lens ring....

anyway new bag ordered more robust.

Was kinda hoping for a refund, the 24-70 is good but its a big thing...... annoys me at times...
