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.

I have this lens and I don't notice any noise changing the aperture at all.  Maybe one of the blades is loose or broken?  Are the picture affected at all?

Thanks for your input. The pictures aren't affected as far as I can tell, I'll take a closer look.

*Update* Went to store to test out two separate new ones-exactly the same noise.
