Fuji GFX50R / EVF has a tiny bit of play in its mounting

Hello,

I just bought a Fuji 50R with the 50 f / 3.5 and I have a question

By tilting the body, no lens attached, from top to bottom or in the opposite way, in portrait or landscape, I hear a noise, it is actually the EVF which has a little bit of play in its mounting. I can see a tiny shake in the EVF when taking pictures, corresponding to the noise I hear. It is when the support face of the EVF in its mounting changes during the tilt...

What about yours?

Didier

No such movement in mine, possibly defective...

Same. No movement. Sounds like yours needs service.

Warranty return on that one - frustrating

Your time is limited, so don't waste it arguing about camera features - go out and capture memories - Oh, and size does matter - shoot MF

Thanks everybody for your feedback

Yes it is frustrating, I like the body and how it performs but I'm pretty sure that the EVF should normally not move, even so slightly, it is annoying....for this price!
