Lenses wiggles on the Metabones adapter.

I notice that some of my lenses when mounted to the metabones adapter slightly wiggles from side to side when focusing or zooming like the Tokina 11-16 and Canon 17-55. The Canon 24mm and 100mm doesn't budge it mounts perfectly. The play is on the front end of the adapter not the back end where it's mounted on the FS700. I also noticed that when I walk around with the camera the lens is wiggling slightly again not all the lenses just the two I mentioned I can see this as being problem for handheld. Is anyone else experiencing the same problem I'm wondering if my metabones adapter is defective or if this is normal.

Re: Lenses wiggles on the Metabones adapter.

It is always a good idea to use a lens support, on bigger lenses and if the lens wiggles I would say it is very important. My Canon L's are solid on the Metabones but I still always use the lens support or mattebox with solid connection to the lens.

Photo below shows my lens support for the 700 with a prototype of the shoulder system.

I make my own it does not require 15mm rails and is very light. It is part of my UniCamRail system that also has a shoulder kit and large battery plate for counterbalance if you want an ENG setup.
