Here is a question for you. How.many of you have at least a little play in your lens barrel?

I tried three this weekend. All seems the same optically. One has a bit of movement in the front barrel however.

Finally bought mine. Seems ok on my own testing. Looking to compare now to my 24-105

Seriously folks. Tolerance from barrel to barrel is cause for misalignment. Does anyone have a copy with at least a little plat in the front barrel when not extended, or even when extended?

Mine has a little play, not near as much as my Panasonic 100-300 though...

Mr Ichiro Kitao, I support the call to upgrade the FZ50.
I will not only buy one but two no questions asked...

Some will tell you that this will cause image problems. I have had lenses that did it too. My old Canon 15-85 had a lot of play. Many cheaper lenses do. Most manufacturers say it's normal. I find every brand will have variations lens to lens. My buddies 15-85 had no play. I tested 3 24-70's in Toronto this weekend and one has considerably more than the other two. Sorta creeps me out.

So...after playing with them all...I picked the one with the tightest lens barrel.
