Stupid couple of questions
3 weeks ago

Hey All,

Got a couple of questions, and I'm sure they are ultra paranoid.

I never really noticed until now, that most of the lenses when put on the X-T1 make the camera leans forward a bit and kind of rest on the front part of the lens. Resting on a table with the camera tilted like that, is that going to cause any undo stress or strain on the mount (camera or lens)?

Second question is in the same vein as the first. I always try to be careful with my gear, just because I obviously want it to last. When I set the camera down on the desk with a lens as I stated it leans forward, and sometimes I forget about that and it leans forward with a little knock on the table, obviously not a slam or even a hard knock, but basically the sound something makes being set down. Since I know lenses can be fragile, will little knocks that that disturb the front elements at all? Or do they really have to be dropped for any kind of problem.

Sorry for what I'm sure are stupid paranoid questions.
