Pentax f 50mm f1.7 image shaking

Hello! My lens dropped on the floor and I've noticed that on autofocus, on close to infinity the image in the viewfinder it's shaking when struggles to focus, it's a slight move. It could be the lens barrel or the glass inside? I'm afraid that in time could fall apart... If I thighten the screws, especially on the barrel would work?The lens barrel has a slight move from the moment I have received the lens and the aperture ring, too. No impact on taking photos...

I'd say the lens needs service or replacement as any faults since the impact will just get worse with use.

That's my thinking, too...
