Does anyone have any experience with this? Its happened 3 times recently. 
I will be using a lens, say my 18-55, and then go to change to my 55-200 and the 55-200 will not fit onto the camera body. I will try and attach it but it does not go into the xmount flush. 
I then reattach the 18-55mm and it fits perfectly. I then take a picture or two and try again and after a few attempts, suddenly the other lens will attach perfectly. 
It has happened with both the 18-55 and the 50-200. I have not noticed any difference in quality.

No. I haven't had this experience. Unusual.

the only reason i can think of why it would behave that way is if one of the lenses were stored in a warm place and the camera was out in the cold, causing the mounting mouth possibly shrink.

Do you have a half case on?

The aperture ring is for composing in the third dimension, not removing it!
