FE zoom rotational play in mount - why?
5 months ago

I just got my FE 70-200 and the build seems excellent, but there's (not unexpectedly) about 1 degree rotational play when mounted to the camera. I understand this won't affect image quality and Sony says it's as designed/within spec, but it's annoying! Does anyone have a theory of why FE zooms have rotational play? It seems that it is only the zooms and not the primes that have some play (not sure if the sony FE 28-70 has play or not).
