My best Guess: The lens is too long and too heavy in it's current mount to maintain proper RF coupling. The focus mount requires tighter tolerances, or the helical to be redesigned to have a longer throw with more turns in the metal to keep it steadier. But it is not possible to have a technical discussion about this lens with the representatives of the company.

This is a shame. I hope Andrew reconsiders since you are clearly a knowledgeable and experienced person and I suspect some of what you said could be put to good use.

Perhaps Andrew is just tired of having to defend his product - this amount of negative publicity and scrutiny is unprecedented.
