The front element and aperture ring of my late non-asph. 35 Summicron have a small but noticeable amount of looseness which means that they can be moved a little off the lens axis. I can't be certain that this has got worse recently or has always been this way - I can't say I've noticed any difference in the performance of the lens, but I'm worried that the looseness is going to get worse. I have never noticed this on any other Leica lens. Has anybody else noticed this with their 7-element 35 Summicron? Any experiences of getting the problem sorted? - there are no visible screws that might be tightened. Thanks, Simon.
