Same experience here. I have several Zeiss ZFs and build quality is their strongest point. Every bit as solid and tight as Leica lenses in my experience. All these current Zeiss lenses are made by Cosina. I don't understand how the rangefinder Zeiss Z lenses would be of lower build quality than the SLR versions. If anything they should be better since they are far less complicated.
