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

If you grab the lens, rotate it back and forth, and you will feel the wiggle

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.

I have had this "problem" with several camerasI have owned (Nikon, Fuji, Panasonic and Olympus). I could slightly wiggle the lens a fraction of a mm. I always thought it should be like this. Never had image quality issues I could see, though.
