Lens Turbo 2 (Mark II) lock problem?

the LT2 barrel doesn't really lock on the NEX mount. I'm afraid that this new poor design is standardized on all versions I'm seeing so far. the new design employs a rubber that presses the mount unlock button on the NEX body.   To secure the LT2 to the nex,  you will need to turn a lock ring on the LT2 barrel .

My experience is when you turn your focus ring or aperture ring on your lenses and you are at the end of your turn, the LT2 barrel will move about 2mm clockwise or counter clockwise depending what direction you are turning.  The bad thing about this is the slight turn might make the rectangular rear element of the LT2 slightly off the rectangular shaped sensor of the camera.

I'd like to hear from some of the LT2 owners here.
