Advice on s/h DA 16-50

Hi everyone,

I am a fairly new Pentax user.
I bought a K5 and decided to upgrade the kit lens with a DA16-50 which I bought second hand.

Although the results seem OK the end of the lens seems a bit sloppy when it is fully extended and there is also some shading on the edge when wide open (from the lens hood, which is also a very loose fit).
Is this normal?

thanks

Welcome to the forum, just a thought for you, maybe it's not the correct hood for that lens.
