Some reviewers wrote the gaskets at the lens mount are useless, as there is a gap between de rubber ring and the mount on the body. Has anybody of you experienced this?

Every body experiences this, as there are no O-rings in the Sony cameras, to complement the O-rings on some lenses. Again, this is normal, not all Canon cameras feature the O-rings too. Still, better to have an O-ring on the lens than not.

Gasket is smaller than Canon ones but same effect anyhow.

I did test mount with 0.02mm blade. It looks gassket is pressing blade hard enough.
