I'm not sure I understand the problem you're describing, but just in case the lens is new to you and you hadn't noticed yet, it's not an internal-focus lens, and that part you're indicating is the lens barrel which moves in and out as the camera focuses. Because it's designed to move, there will always be a tiny amount of play. If the lens is functioning well in all other respects, I wouldn't worry about it. Sleep easy!

That part of the lens should not move. Only the inner barrel moves. If the outer part where the hood attaches is moving, then something is loose and I think it should be repaired.

I beg your pardon! You're right of course - I don't know how that idea got into my head - must have been thinking about a different lens...
