Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 makes "clunk" sound. Normal?

Re: Mine is 3 months old and does the slight 'clunk' (n/t)

As long as focus is smooth, aperture works as expected, you don't see anything unusual in photos and the lens stays in 1 piece, why care?

Because it could indicate that something had come loose and would soon fail. I'd rather catch it before failure, than take it on a job and fail there.

Also, it only has four more months to go for warranty. Rather catch it now then after
warranty expires.
