Stop Lens Wiggle on Sony NEX Cameras with Fotodiox's Tough E-Mount

This video from Fotodiox walks you through installing their new $40 Tough E-Mount, which replaces the plastic parts inside the lens mount of Sony NEX E-Mount cameras like the FS100 and FS700 (the newer Sony a7S already has a full metal mount):

Here is the list of supported cameras:

If you're noticing excessive wiggle on your lenses when you're trying to focus, it may be worth checking out the Tough E-Mount. The adapter is especially useful if you're putting heavier lenses and adapters plus lenses on your camera.

You can find the adapter over on Amazon or at the Fotodiox website

Just for your interest, the FS100 and FS700 both have a full metal mount.
I've just checked ;)
That would make sense since they are pro camcorder, need the extra strengh for heavier lenses.

What is Sony thinking with a plastic locking mechanism on their lens mount?

Looks like a nice idea, but in the professional world a camera that undergoes such a procedure is usually checked on a collimator to ensure the backfocus is perfect. Not something widely available for the common shooter.

Will this work on the A5100?
