Tamron 24-70 owners, does your lens barrel have a slight "wiggle" ?
10 months ago

I must be going through a bad patch as sorting out AF adjustments with my D800, yesterday I noticed that the front barrel of my one month old Tamron 24-70 rattles !

To be more precise, if not at 70mm zoom position, if I hold the D800 facing up and move it, I can hear and feel a clear knock coming from the Tamron. If I hold it with my left hand at 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock and gently twist the hand, I hear that noise again and can actually see the barrel move !

Could other owners tell me if their copy does that as well ? I am quite certain mine was fine, even the zoom ring now has a small "free" move when changing direction.

Thank you

Nikon D800
