X-T3 Lens mount corrosion?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've had my X-T3 for just under a year. I've recently noticed something going on around the lens mount, mainly on one side.

Is this corrosion? It doesn't clean off.

Any ideas or thoughts as to what this is would be most welcome.

Thanks

Steve.

Hello,

It looks like corrosion from exposure to salt.

What type of environment do you use you camera in?

Are you located close to the ocean or have you visited any locations where you were around salt water?

Cheers.

I already had that, but on an expensive KHE Big-O BMX rim. This is where the chrome layer detaches from the aluminium. This continues until the entire chrome layer is destroyed. If you wait long enough, then you only have one skeleton left of the X Mount. That's just a bad chrome plating of the material.
