Nikon 12-24 f4 problem.(ebay seller).

I have just received a Nikon 12-24 f4 described  as mint condition from an ebay seller.

As soon as I mounted the lens to my camera I noticed that there was a distinct wobble or movement when handling the camera/lens combo.

It seems like the lens barrel is a little loose on its mount and is more apparent with the lens set at its longest focal length.

I have owned dozens of lenses in the past and never noticed movement like this.

The seller maintains that the item is perfect and works as it it should.

Packaging was in perfect condition and the lens shows no signs of physical damage.

Does anyone else have a wobbly 12-24 f4?

I returned the item immediately.
