DFA 100mm Macro Rattling Sound

I recently purchased a Pentax DFA 100mm Macro off of ebay. It has a bit of a rattling sound when I tilt it back and forth, (This is when I tilt the lens even slightly, not "shake" it). It happens mounted or not. Seems to take pictures with no problems, but I can hear the faint back and forth "tink" sound every time I shift the camera. The seller said it was normal and other samples he tested had it too.

I was hoping other members who own DFA 100mm macros could tell me if their samples did the same thing.

Any input is appreciated.

Had the DFA 100mm & DFA 50mm and both don't have any sound when inverted or mounted.
