Does DA70 barrel wobble?

Just noticed mine does, just a liitle bit, the barrel that moves when focusing. Nothing wrong with picture quality. Would have expected better build quality for a limited lens.

I've had this issue on my mind for a while now, but I've been trying to convince myself that I'm just being too picky. Mine has some serious wobble as well, and it's significantly greater than with the kit lens, the other two Limiteds I own, and an old Vivitar 50-200mm.
