Re: Olympus 12-40 Lens Barrel Wobbling

Hello KAi Wu.

Do you still have the 12-40mm? I just bought one and mine also wobbels. Lens is made in Vietnam . Wonder how  splash/dust proof this lens is with the wobble. Any experience? Is on the long run the lens reliable ?  Love the sharpness of the lens.

Best regards Peter

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?
