DA*16-50 Barrel loose

I have just purchased a new DA*16-50 and noticed on full zoom the barrel has movement at the end side to side with out much effort. Around 2mm is this normal or should I be sending it back?

It flops around some, 2-3 mm is about right.

As far as I can tell it's fine but as I'm traveling at present I don't have access to my computer or my photo shop so far they look great.
