All I can think of, is perhaps someone had it apart who didn't know the procedure for reinstalling the lens and got it out of synch. Is there any setting of the focus on the lens (disregarding the RF) that will give clearance? Have you used it and do the RF and lens track focus properly? Also, I wonder if some of the early ones didn't have the interchangeable lens feature.
