Pentax Q lens mount slightly wobbly
Jul 8, 2013

Hi guys,

I just bought the Q + 5-15 lens (for £150 which is unbelievable value for money). Anyway, I noticed that the lens is slightly wobbly. I don't notice it when I use the zoom ring, but when I hold it from its base (behind the zoom ring) and try to rotate it, it will move slightly (1mm at most) along the sensor plane. It doesn't move along the axis vertical to the sensor.

I don't think it affects image quality (although theoretically the properties of the light hitting the sensor would change if the lens position changes) but I was curious if anybody else has noticed this.

Thanks,

Avgoustinos
