I have recently purchased a GS1200. The gate tension seems rather slack and the lens easily swings-out with focus drifting. Would anyone know if it may be possible to increase the gate tension?

Just have the machine serviced seems like all these machines are stiff after not being used for a very long time. A good serviceman will know what to do
