Mine looks exactly like that.

I returned it, got another, and even that one looks exactly the same. It's the same aperture blade, sticking out the same amount.

The manufacturing is very precise, seeing how exactly the problem is replicated. Is not everyone seeing this problem???

I'm now debating what to do, as I have less reason to believe that exchanging this would help. Now the question is whether I return this for good or live with it (which is possible).


Just remove the front element and use an exacto knife and tweezers. Simple fix.
