HD DA limited red ring loose? (15mm)

Hi all! I was inspecting my 15mm Limited today, and noticed that the cosmetic red ring is loose, as in it moves back and forth slightly, and will even rotate around the lens barrel.

Is this normal, or should I consider RMAing this lens?

I've seen this happen with the SMC limiteds too. Just a manufacturing defect I think.

Definitely get your lens replaced.

Maybe it's a new form of Quick-Shift.

Or a push-pull zoom (14.5mm to 15.5mm)

Indeed, the new wide zoom for the Q barely has more zoom range (1.55).
