Pana 100-300 - extended part loose when zoomed?
Mar 26, 2013

When I zoom my Pana 100 - 300 to 300mm, the extended part of the lens is quite floppy. I can move the front of the lens 3-4 mm up/down/left/right with almost no force.

It still works fine, but I don't remember it being that loose when it was new.

Is this typical?

Thanks in advance for any responses.
