DA*60-250mm f4.0

I just received my long awaited DA*60-250 (courier problem, the package was sitting in Miami for over two weeks).

Anyway: WOW! IT LOOKS REALLY NICE!

No pics to show yet, but I did have a look on the lens itself and found the extension tube of the zoom just a bit wobbly fully extended. Is it normal on this quality range lens?

Oh BTW, SDM is still working. Did not fail during the first short test.

I love my 60-250 in spite of it's AF going kerplunk.
And I'm a die hard zoom lens hater, so this is a big statement for me.
There is a bit of wobble in the barrel at maximum length, but it doesn't seem to affect anything.
