My Nex-7 tripod mount is broken somehow from the load of heavey lenses...
Jul 23, 2012

I use the MTF Nikon G lens adapter and use my Nikon 28-300mm and 24-70mm lenses on the camera and mounted on the tripod with the RRS L-plate on the camera:

There was a crack around that tiny screw above the tripod screw (I forgot to take a picture of the actual broken mount before I sent to cam to Sony):

Sony would not repair the camera under warranty but was willing replace it with a new body for $750.

Now, I don't know if I'm going to use those lenses mounted on the tripod anymore on this camera...

The whole tripod mount is held together by that tiny screw and it's kind of very weak. Should this camera be strong enough to use these heavy lenses or not?
