Good Morning Everyone.

Just picked up a Samsung NX1 with the 16-50mm S Lens. When the lens is attached, it feels somewhat loose in the rotation. For example, when moving the zoom ring all the way from one side to the other, the lens rotates a little as well at the end. The amount is small and I cannot actually see it when looking at the alignment dots, but I can definitely feel it when moving.

I did not have the issue with my Nikon D7200. I dont have any other Samsung lens yet to check with it.

Is this somewhat normal or is this something that I should be concerned about and try to get an exchange or refund for.

Looking for any help or advice that could be given.

Thanks !

It's a known issue with the mount and fairly common. The good news is that it is not a serious issue.
