I looked at the pic as well..........it seems like it's a little too much.
I guess that is why i prefer a single cam, accutrac is my favorite so far.
I had a 2009 firecat and i didn't notice any cam lean...but it was slower than my martin with a Accutrac single cam.......????? go figure
Just my opinion.
The lean is only the beginning of the problem, I've taken the bow to two different places and its shooting about 14 inches low at ten yards, can't use any of pins at all in the sight, the bow is 100% lined up, tunes good on paper as well, I will be giving them a call Monday they close early on Fridays , so I wasn't able to get in touch with them. But fisher , you read all of Joel's original posts , it's overrated, and not a problem according to him. Also yes that was me drawing it, no press
The dealer I took it to today , told me the only issue he's seen like this was once Martin shipped him a bow , they couldn't figure it out and sent it back, when they did, they discovered that it had a different poundage limb on the bottom , causing it tended to launch arrows more downward. But they fixed it and sent it back
For a ten yard shot, try using your 25 yds pin, the closer you get the higher the pin needs to be, for instance, in a field round you will have a 7 yds shot, to hit the X, I have to use my 35 yd mark. I say mark because I use a slngle pin slider. To hit the x at 2 yds, it would have to be about the 50 yd mark or more. Try it.

The more I look at that pic DZ......that just isn't right in my book. I would be weirded out shooting it.
I can't believe that it couldn't be sent in to martin and have their peeps look it over and make the necessay changes to make it right.
That has to be way too much cam lean......
I just don't see how that can be acceptable.
I would have to assume that you've been in contact with Joel on here...
I've had a couple of firecats.......and never had that kind of cam lean. I looked often enough and really never detected any.
