I have jut bought a new Olympus 12-40 2.8 lens for a few days. When the lens barrel is extended to maximum length, I found the extended part of the barrel is a little wobbling and can hear the wobbling sound when I shake or gently fiddle with it up and down. However the lens optics and mechanism are both working fine. Does anyone's lens has the same situation? Or I've got a defective one?


Mine wobbles too, and has been doing that since I bought it two years ago. I was a little concerned in the beginning but it hasn't become worse so I guess it's normal. But I had preferred if they had built it with internal zoom. Anyway, they didn't, and it's a wonderful lens, wobbling or not.
