Question to owners of the CZ135 f1.8 lens

I recently bought a Carl Zeiss 135mm 1.8 lens from ebay for about £825 used. it's in generally good condition but there is one thing that is annoying me. The upper lens barrel section with the "Sonnar 1,8/135 ZA" inscribed, above the focus ring and where a lens filter attaches, is rattly and seems a little "loose", and jiggles about, and there is a little play handling the lens. I expected such a lens to have solid construction. Is this normal? Or has my lens been slightly damaged somewhat?
