new Sony 35mm f1.8 FE problem - anyone have this issue?

So, got the lens, works perfectly, but I think mine is faulty..

There seems to be a loose element in it, every time I turn the lens upside down/right way up I feel something move/slide inside the lens which then slides and stops with a sudden thump.

From the rear, it looks like the aperture blade element is sliding forwards and backward freely.

Also, when attached to the camera (and the camera us turned on) the motor is constantly making noise. It is a very quiet noise, but its there all the same, and it does it all the time, regardless if Im using the camera or not...If the camera is on, the lens is making a noise.

Im assuming this is a fault and not a new "design" floating element feature?
