Bushing issues are no more likely than any number of high performance lens issues seen with floating elements etc.

What is the story with these bushings? Are they plastic, so they wear a lot? I bought a used Minolta MD 24mm F2.8 which had floating elements. It focused with a gritty noise and feeling, and gave horrible softness away from the center. I suspect it had a bad "floating" mechanism.

That Minolta commands a high price in the used market (higher than equivalent Canon FD), so it presumably is good.
