New ZI with marks on lens mount ring
Got a new Zeiss Ikon with the 50 Sonnar a week ago and just noticed that the lens mount ring shows already strong marks/scratches. The camera has hardly been used and besides the Sonnar, only two Leica lenses were mounted. I am quite surprised about my observation , since the mount rings of my M6 and M8 show no marks or signs of wear, although especially the M8 having been used quite extensively over the last 6 months.
I'm now reluctant to use the Sonnar on the Leica's since the issue could be with the lens itself or simply with inferior materials used for the ZI lens mount ring. Any similar experiences from other ZI or ZM lens owners?
