Nikon 105mm F2.8 Micro Lens Defective?

Hey everyone,

I just received my brand new Nikon 105mm f2.8 Micro lens. What a beautiful lens, but I was wondering if I received a defective copy.

1). Whenever I slide my VR button to "off", I hear a spring sound. Which is uncommon since I never heard of this sound from other lenses.

2). Furthermore, when I shake the lens, I hear a rattling sound...is this also from the VR?

And are these two problems considered normal?

Overall, great lens and wanted to make sure I received a good copy.

Thanks in advance!
