For a number of reasons including having a Dirac g-factor g = 2, the most probable approximation for the exterior gravitational and electromagnetic ﬁeld of the electron is the Kerr-Newman solution to the Einstein-Maxwell equations. It is shown that the Kerr-Newman solution when used as the exterior Einstein-Maxwell ﬁeld for the electron gives rise to a standard statistical measuring uncertainty in the position of the particle. The size of the uncertainty is the Compton wavelength. The uncertainty therefore coincides with that which is usually inferred for the electron in the context of relativistic quantum mechanics.
