I just bought a Olympus 45mm lens for my GX7. I also have 20mm and a 14-140mm zoom which are both Panasonic. The Panasonic lenses fit just perfectly to GX7 with no effort at all and you get a feeling of high quality. When I put my new Olympus lens the fit is much tighter and it doesn't slide as nicely to lock position (you get a feeling that it should need some oil. Of course I don't put any). Is this normal for Olympus lenses?

My 45 is fine on the GX7 no different in that regard to Oly 14-42 kit lens or 12 f2 Oly or Pana 20.
