Re: It's the clearance between the locking pin and the slot in the lens mount

No other brand has this problem. Somehow Fuji-san thinks they need to have a wider slot to make sure they all fit. (Come on, fix the quality).

You don't notice this problem with a lighter lens, but if you put an adapter and mount a heavy lens like a 200mm tele, you will notice the wiggling.

I have used all kind of adapters on Canon and Sony, no such problem. Just Fuji.

This also happen in all my Nikon gears!

Provided that it doesn't affect the lens electronic contacts and there is only a planar movement, then its OK and will not affect your image quality.
