smc-a 35-70mm f4 lens a little wobbly..

bought off of ebay for a song. glass in great sharp and really enjoy the macro capabilities and overall flexibility of the len ..only thing is the lens barrel seams to have about 1/32 of an inch of play at the focusing ring and the housing of the front lens. Also it is almost to easy to focus does this sound right? Is it worth sending to pentax to be looked at?

My picts seem to be sharp for a zoom....

Sending in an A-series lens for service is a money pit. My advice is to just live with it if it doesn't significantly affect image quality or your enjoyment shooting with it.
