i just got a used SEL50 lens and when i wiggle it, i hear something inside the lens that seems to move around and make some sounds like something is loose. is this normal ?

SEL 50mm is an OSS (optical steady-shot) lens so I believe the sound comes from the OSS component inside the lens. So it is normal

I never tried to wiggle and hear the sound on my 55-210mm lens which have OSS too, but I had a Canon EF-S lens with IS (image stabilization, equal to OSS in Sony) and have the same behaviour when it was wiggled.

Hope this help.
