I just bought a used Tamron XR Di II 17-55 2.8 lens. I find that the lens hood/filter ring is loose and seems to be on springs. It can move in and out about 1/32". Is this normal?

you can pry the outer rim off to access the screws that tighten the filter ring

It's a fairly common issue with this lens. As mentioned you can tighten it back on. There are youtube videos showing how if you want to do a search (I can't get to youtube from this computer or I'd link you to one)

I had the same problem. Luckily a Tamron service center is 20 min away from my house. They said it was fairly common and a quick fix to tighten. My lens hood would wobble because the front of the lens was loose. The good thing about Tamron fixing it is they will check the focus calibration, clean any internal dust and best of all it's free. They have a 6 year warranty.

There is a video on YouTube if you want to do it yourself.

One of the reasons I bought my Tammy, have not needed to send it in for anything, I just like the 6 year backing. Looking for this same lens, will keep this in mind if the one I get is loose.
