    The removable metal collar around my G1X feels loose and rattles when I shake the camera, is this normal?
    I just purchased it today. Is their supposed to be some "play" on the lens with this part?

    I don't think that mine rattles, but it is by no means a tight fit. It rotates very freely when mounting or dismounting the collar.

    Mine moves a tiny tiny bit and if I shake it hard it rattles just a tiny tiny bit too.

    Hi guys, I have just bought my g1x and found the lense tight enough but it has fallen off (and got damaged/dented in the process) three times by inadvertently activating the release button. This has really annoyed me as I didn't even notice it happening until the lense fell off. Has this happend to anybody else?
