EM1mk2 HAS THE LENS THREAD CHANGED??

Has the main lens thread changed slightly during production?
I have two EM1mk 2 cameras purchased about 6 months apart. I also still have a canon favourite lens which I use with a metabones smart adaptor T. For some unknown reason the Metabones fits one EM1mk2 but not the other EM1MK2. When I offer up the Metabones it fits but will not tun to lock? I find this rather weird? Has anyone else had this experience, the Metabones is about 3 years old originally purchased for both my em5mk2 and original EM1 both fitted well.
Kind regards mike.

There have been instances of the 100-400 being a too tight a fit but every one blamed the lens.

No, no change, but there can be small differences within the allowed tolerances.

If all your lenses fit both cameras then you need to get the Metabones fixed/replaced.

I suspect that, as others have said, this is a tolerancing issue. Try looking closely at your metabones mount and see if there are any signs of a raised burr or a screw that's slightly raised. Perhaps something just needs easing a little. Those little emery boards used for smoothing finger nails can be very good for taking off a raised burr.

Thanks people, I only keep the Metabones for my Tamron 180 SP Macro, itís a shame OLY doesnt do a longer focal length macro.
Kind regards Mike

I have had the same experience with adapters. It's a tolerance problem as others have already stated.

If you do 'file' anything back, make very sure all particles are totally cleaned up. It wouldn't be good with them getting into the camera.
