Sony SEL 35 F/1.8 rattly noise upon aperture blade change

A colleague recently got a used copy of this lens. The Sony site states "...smooth, silent and unobtrusive."  It's anything but on an A6000 body.  I turned off the OSS and no change-  Something sounds loose and rattly as the aperture blades change.

Do you feel this is normal for this particular lens? I personally don't have a problem with it but he believes his wife might.

I'm not an experienced Sony user so thanks in advance for any of your observations.
