Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro - tad loose focus ring - normal?
4 months ago

Hi all,

I just got this lens as a refurbed copy from Canon's website for around $400 and am overall happy with the deal.

One thing I want to verify is that there's slight wiggle room with the focus ring. It's enough where I can fold a piece of printer paper in two and slide it between the ring and the rest of the barrel, then the wiggle room is gone. So it is very slight, but enough where moving the ring makes a bit of an audible sound as plastic goes against plastic. If you have the same lens, can you check if your focus ring is ever so slightly loose?

I haven't tested the lens in detail, but it doesn't seem to affect focus issues so far. Thanks.
