I’ve dabbled with video content before, and to be completely honest I don’t know why I haven’t done more. Below is a video comparing the Makrolon version of the Lamy 2000 to the Stainless Steel version of the Lamy 2000. Please let me know what you think in the comments! Would you like to see more video comparisons and reviews?

I have a Makrolon Lamy 2000 which I purchased new within the last year, and it definitely has the same amount of play as your stainless steel version. Do you think I should contact Lamy support?
Maybe I got lucky with mine?
I don’t think it’s a real issue, but if it bothers you then that’s your call!
Being in the lucky position of owning 4 L2k’s – one stainless, 3 Makrolon – 2 have the slightly loose clip (both Makrolons) and 2 don’t. When you look at how the cap/clip/cap finial assembly you can see that the clip is actually supposed to potentially shift like that on its spring; the specimens that don’t have the ‘shifty’ clip are just a tad tighter – hard to avoid in a mass-produced item like that since 1-5/100 of a mm probably make all the difference in the world. (I’m perfectly fine like that – it’s still the world’s greatest large brand FP!
