hi my 1st post an my 1st cam.

i just buy it yesterday, and pay a lot of mony for it. and i guess i have a problem. but i hope i havent. i really hope it have no problem coz i like it very much.

so... the lens is a little bit moving up/doen/right/left when out or in. a little bit wobbling i guess. and if i shake the cam a little bit or rotate it i can heare the lens moving (wobbling). the zoom is working well. just the lens. i hope u know what i mean and i hope that some1 can help me.

so is it a problem or is it something normal? i hope is ok.

thx

Dear Picsel:

I have read posts on more than one site

from S5000/5100/5500 owners

concerned about loose lens barrels.

For instance, this fellow

http://www.camerashed.co.uk/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=39

went so far as to disassemble his,

only to find nothing wrong with it.

The consensus would seem to be

that a certain loosenessis normal.

Good luck with your new camera!

(Good choice, by the way.)

There is no difference between the two. The 5500 is not sold in the USA, that is the only difference the name.

Congrats on your new camera! I hope to see some photos soon. All ultra zoom point and shoot have this semi loose lens feel. I had the same with an Olympus camera.

Hello!

my S5000 has that issue too. I checked with Fuji earlier today and all of their S5000 has this looseness feel to it. well I think its just normal for our camera. It doesn't have any effect on the image so its really no big deal to me.

Hope that gives you a some comfort.
