New 70-200 f/2.8L IS II - is this an issue? Should I return and get another lens?
Dec 30, 2013

Got this for Xmas and am loving it so far on my 6D.  Two minor issues.

1) The focus ring seems loose.  What I mean is that there is slight play back and forth if my hand pushes the focus ring forward or backwards.  There is no such play with the zoom ring.

2) The lens does not seem to mount very snugly on my 6D.  Again, there is some side to side play.  None of my other lenses do this on my 6D (tested four lenses).

I seem to recall someone posting that that a few copies had a mount issue.  As a hobbyist, my 24-105L was my most expensive lens purchase, so this lens is by far my largest investment.  Should I return this to B&H for another one?

Thanks.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Canon EOS 6D
