    Default Tight lens mount

    Is it normal for new lens to have very tight lens mounting?

    For new lens it could be, but not until you need extra power to mount or unmount. It will be ok after few times mount and unmount. For non metal mount, you need to be more careful.

    Just curious, what body/lens combination is this ? Just wanna know if its due to plastic lens mount (plastic is moulded (may have moulding imperfections like flash while metal is machined)).
