ex3 going back

Just to let you all know a couple of strange faults with my ex3
First of all Sony have told me to see if when zooming in and out that the subject/object does not move around the frame which [so ive been told is one of the reasons for firmware update 1.03 from version 1.02],fortunately I dont seem to have this problem.

The second problem is a real strange one with the Libec lanc /zoom controler [zc-9ex]
When I connect this and zoom right into full telephoto with servo and stop,the servo zoom will just start to slowly creep back out to eventually fully wide [Strange eh]
So i took the offending Libec controller to the broadcast show @ Earls court in London last week and put it on Sony's demo cam ex3 which zoomed in perfectly and stayed dead still.
So it must be my exclusive Fujion standard lens that shipped with the camera yes?
Ah well I had the other exclusive wide lens from fujion back at the studio so I thought I would just put that on and it will work ....wont it
Anyway back at base and put the other lens on and hey presto that to creeps back from fully telephotoed in with the libec lanc.
by the way both the handle and main rocker zoom work perfectly and hold zoom without drift.
Camera going back to sony as when I spoke to them they were most intrigued to see this problem for themselves as they had not heard of it before.
Anyone had this issue/problem?
