Re: Describe the play?

The play occurs in the portion of the lens that extends during zooming. That portion of the lens has a bit of movement in directions perpendicular to the barrel. Not in and out from the camera, up, down, right and left and everything in between. It's not a lot of play, but it's there.

Thanks for clarifying, when the lens is extended on mine it does have movement less than a mm in all directions, when retracted it is firm. I haven't had an external zoom lens in so long I have to say I forgot it moved as well. Nothing but primes and the 35-100 Panasonic which is internal.

Here's to learning something new everyday, and remembering it the next.

Thanks to everyone for their responses.  Peace of mind is a great thing.
