    The back cover on my Mamiya 7 has some play to it when it's closed, mainly on the top left corner. It sticks out slightly more than the bottom left corner, and goes in if I push it with my finger. It hasn't caused any light leaks. I'm just wondering if this is common?

    Jesse, I have a Mamiya 6 that does the same thing. No problems. I'm pretty sure the pressure plate makes up for any play in the back.

    sounds like it's bent. None of the 3 I have/had had that issue...
