How snug a fit should a lens make on M240?
Jul 10, 2014

Just acquired a new Leica M 240 to go with a gorgeous used sum micron m 35 Asph. Yesterday, I noticed a very slight "play" in the lens when it is in the locked position. The play is very slight along the shutter axis: you can rotate it back and forth by a millimeter or so even though it has clicked in place. It does not seem to affect the focus sharpness.

Is this a serious matter? Or should I just disregard it? I am new to the M and don't have another lens to check against.

You answer is appreciated!

summicron 35 mm f2, auto everything else. center focus.
