How is the rattle gonna get worse over time? its just a plastic lense badly fitted on another piece pf plastic, high production tolerance or bad design. It's like asking if a maraca will sound louder over time
I would actually say asking if it gets worse over time is a completely valid question. I do not know if it gets substantially worse, but it wouldn't be a horrible assumption if used over a prolonged period of time (I think Rocket Jump Ninja said his g303 rattle got worse). If there is a rattle, that means it will lightly batter anything that it is restrained by. Through prolonged and aggressive usage, even a maraca will break down and not be usable. Obviously it would take time and heavy usage, but saying it definitely can't happen is silly.
I also stated earlier in the thread that I already have taped down the lens in the g303 that I own. I don't want to replace the mouse feet every time I need to put new tape in there. I also want to stray away from modifying mice so I can buy a replacement that will function in the exact same way. Even if you still believe tape is a good fix for this, that is not what the thread is about. Not trying to be rude.
On a related note to the original topic, I recently bought a rival 300. It has very minor lens rattle, but I am not sure how much it is having an effect on the tracking.
