New XT2 or 100-400 lens defective but which is it?

Just purchased this combination and went out to shoot the USA national cycling championship in Rock Hill, SC USA. During the shoot using AFC low and zone focusing :continuous auto focus setting 1, the EVF would black out when I zoomed the lens. At first I didn't get that this was abnormal behavior but I gradually determined that when I twisted the zoom on the lens the lens wobbled at the mount.

It appears that the lens is not adequately secured in the mount, resulting in a momentary electrical disconnect between lens and body when twisting the zoom ring and leveraging the lens.

My question is: which component should I suspect of being defective or is this typical behavior?

Comments/ideas appreciated.

Regards,

Wes Mallard
