DA16-45 build concerns

1) The focus ring on mine is a little loose, ie can be moved up & down independent of rotational movement.
2) When at 16mm - ie as far forward as the front element moves - the tube it's attached to can be wobbled a mm or so.

Reason for concern? Unfortunately I've got no other lens to compare with so this might be a stupid question.

Well I agree its not as built as I would like. but none of the external zooms are that. This is why I like internal-zooming because I beat the crap out of my equipment and often wack the lens against a door frame or something while busting through a crowd or carrying a lot of gear.
The play is normal. Mine had that much when new and has gotten only a little more. Not bad in my book since what I do to it.
