What's wrong with my 50?

I just got a M50/1.7.

I was going to see if I can test it out today, then I noticed that the distance ring wasn't rotating with the focus ring

Sorta caught...going to snap a few shots today, but I still have to call my seller.

Any advice?

I have an M50/2.0 where the grip became disconnected from the barrel. The barrel will move if you grip it by the top of the barrel itself.

I've toyed around with gluing the grip back to the barrel, but I don't ever use (or want to use) the lens.

Does it still focus? I doub't I would care very much about the markers myself... I have that lens, and I don't think I've ever looked at anything beyond the apeture ring!
