A very little bit of wiggle room is fine on the lens to body fit; it isn't nearly as tight as something like the 70-200 that has a gasket for sealing. Mine has always had a little bit and it's never been an issue.

I see no one has addressed the "movement" issue. Could the mount be letting in some stray light? I don't think movement is normal if you are talking about lens to body fit.

There is some play in the body mount to lens; that is normal. And it wont let in "stray light."


Why don't you try Av or Tv instead of Manual? Set your desired aperture for DOF or shutter speed, pick an ISO, and let the camera meter the rest. If the image is under or overexposed, use the EV to dial in the right metering.

Depending on the flight path, the light will change and you can't adjust the settings as fast as the camera. Give it a shot and see if it works better.

1/1250 sec + will stop that. You might have to increase the ISO, but that's life.
