Nikon 24-70 2.8 zoom ring wiggle

I just bought a Nikon 24-70 2.8 and I noticed that the zoom right wiggles slightly up and down (up towards front lens element and down towards lens mount). It is a very small movement and I don't notice it while actually using the lens, but every time I go to pick up my camera/lens combo whether from placing it down or from a bag my left hand grabs the zoom ring and I can feel a slight wiggle (less than 1 mm but enough to feel/notice the movement). This is Nikon's pro zoom and I was surprised by this as my 17-55DX 2.8 doesn't exhibit this wiggle in the zoom ring and is solid. For those of you that own this lens, can you please check to see if this wiggle up and down is normal? Thanks in advance!
