Noise inside Da*200 lens

Today I noticed that if I rock the lens from side to side I can hear a slight noise from inside the lens. Is this normal?

Are you rocking it with the lens off the camera? If so, hold the aperture stop down lever with a finger. That should stop the noise.

I have never thought of "shaking" my DA* 200 (or any other lens) before, but yes, there is a minute - VERY slight - 'rattle' if I do.

The most likely explanation to me: There is a motor + transmission and a focus-quick-shift mechanism inside the lens and thus, some fairly free-moving parts?

Thanks. I tried that but it did not make any difference.

When I took the lens off of the camera body I felt something move inside the lens and I suspected it had something to do with the quick shift mechanism. Thanks for taking the time to reply and confirm my suspicions.
