My soft release: ABRAHAMSSON MINI BLACK M-SOFTIE SOFT RELEASE NEW that I used for years on my X100F won’t screw into my new V.

Did something change in the V?

Someone else mentioned that the threading is slightly different on the V and that his Lensmate button didn't fit correctly. I talked with the Lensmate rep and they said they noticed this also.

WHAT........ Not another thing.

So, we have:-
Thumb-rests not fitting correctly.
Lens cap slightly of a larger size.
Soft-release thread different.

Then the reported issues:-
Grinding from the Focus ring.
Heat buildup (supposedly due to weather sealing)!

I’m really starting to think “what next”?

Let me also add: I freakin' love my V.
