wobble on the last lens element of the DA 15mm

hi guys

i start cleaning my lenses today ( after water splashes on my FA 43mm) and while cleaning i noticed that in the DA 15mm near the mount the last lens element is connected to a plastic ring as with any other lens. but this plastic ring have a slight wobble to it.should i be worried or is this normal.

Thankz

If that's the group that moves while focusing, I wouldn't be too concerned, especially if the pics are turning out fine.
