So my GF 4/120 arrived. Something was literally banging around inside the lens, I could see the inner element from the rear moving fore and aft actually. I attached it to the camera anyway, and it seemed to focus. However it went straight back into its packaging and I returned it. Perhaps the box took a hard tumble in shipping. On the plus side I dragged out the Techart and figured out how to upgrade it.

I’m assuming the loose component is not normal. Please correct me if I’m wrong though!

Hi,

It may be that you just see a voice coil drive focusing group in action...

Best regards

Erik
