Does your 10-24mm rattle

I just received my 10-24mm lens and on unboxing I noticed that I can hear the lens rattle a bit. Is this abnormal?

Thanks in advance.

They all rattle.

Mine had to go back. It wasn't solid in the body housing and periodically lost electronic communication.

Are you saying a rattle is indicative of the problem you had, and all of them have it.  Or that they all have the rattle--perhaps due to OIS or something else--but also that yours had a problem unrelated to the rattle and had to go back?

Or something else?

Brian. Too much stuff; not enough stuff.

It should not rattle. But its a new lens so maybe production issues.

Mine does a bit.

I'm guessing that it's the OIS mechanism that has some sort of play designed into it.

Mine works very well so not concerned.

I agree.  Only when the camera is off.  When the camera is turned on, it works spectacularly.

Nikon lenses with vibration reduction used to come with instructions to turn the VR off before turning the camera off to avoid the lens chattering. I don't know if they still warn buyers about that. My 10-14 doesn't rattle, but I'm in the habit of turning the OIS off before I turn the camera off.

This thread makes me feel a little better.  I bought a 55-200mm on the sale, but I still do not have the X-T1 to test it on.  It also rattles too, so I hope that is normal as well.
