When zooming to 40mm the tube has a little play/wobble/rattle. maybe thats the reason dust can come in?

I agree, the 12-40 has a lot of barrel wobbling/play issue. It's potentially a way of entry for large dust particles to get under the hydrophobic mesh and inside the lens.

Is mine the only copy that doesn't wobble? Strange.
