Hi,

I have two EF-S lenses for my 40D, a 10-22 and a 17-55 2.8. I have noticed that once locked into place each lens is actually slightly loose on the camera body (by that I mean the lens can actually twist slightly). Is this normal or should I be getting it sorted under warranty?

Thanks,
Dave.

I asked this myself some time ago, it's normal for there to be some give, about half a millimeter.

My lenses have a teensy weensy bit of play on the lens mount as well. All of them actually. It's gets more noticeable the longer and heavier the lens is. Seems to be status quo though.

Twist without deflection = OK, If there is any deflection (up down or left to right movement) then you need to send it to cannon for repair if the lens is tight on all other cameras.

Many thanks. Looks like I'm OK.

Cheers,
