16-50 - too much free play on mount? (X-A1)

I recently noticed that my 16-50 has approx 0.5mm play when turning the zoom back and forth. Is this normal? The zoom ring is one of the stiffest I've experienced on a lens and having the lens rock back and forth on its mount while using doesn't inspire confidence, not to mention is annoying as well.
