TC "Loose Part" Noise?
I'm not skilled at all in understanding lens construction and parts.
Today I received a Nikon TC-14E II 1.4X Teleconverter.
I note that when I pick up the TC or when it's mounted on my 70-200 F/4 lens, there is a "loose part" noise that's easily traced to the side of the TC that attaches to the lens.
The "loose part" looks like a small aperture blade that is in a small curved slot and can move from one end of the slot to the other side of the slot, traveling about 3/8 of an inch or so.
I did a search in this forum and come up short, making me think that there's something I should know about a TC.
I'm not hitting the panic button yet, because it seems like this part in the slot I described fits quite well and looks designed to be "free floating" as it is.
But........I'm not used to hearing that kind of a loose sound associated with a camera or camera gear.
Can anyone please educate me about this part in the slot?
Thanks, as always.........
I'd rather be lucky than good
