Anyone experiencing the tiniest wobble in the focus ring? It is so slight that it is almost a non issue but every review has said that there is no wobble and the build quality is extremely solid.

bw!

I'm sorry but if it's "almost a non issue" what's the problem? I'm sure it's built to an acceptable tolerance.

Just get out with your kit and enjoy it instead of worrying about it. If it gets worse over time THEN worry about it, if it's still under warranty it will be repaired.:rolleyes:

I still have the opportunity to exchange for another one which might not have this "non-issue".

Just wondering! :oops:

Very solid built, super smooth ring for me. It will wobble a tiny bit, but you really have to wiggle it in the axial direction. And even then, it will only wobble a TINY bit.

*gasp* For 2400 clams, this thing should be bulletproof. Guess I'll scratch the 70/200II off my "To-Get" list.

I just wanted to know! Sorry guys! Anyone purchased a 2400 dollar lens (well 2100 for me) will be glad to know this is normal. Trust me, the lens feels like a million bucks ;)

Mine is very solid!
Don't worry and just go shooting some ducks! That's why it's made for in the first place :-).

Bottom line is if you feel it is not operating as it should, return or exchange it.

This lens lives on my camera and I have no issues (other than user error, but that is another post).

I don't have any wobble but, if it bothers you that much, exchange it.

Hehe, but optically it's like shooting through a tube full of primes. Worth $2400 to me.

Julian, you can have your very own copy too, for roughly $2122 shipped :)

no.

:lol:

I'll have this lens someday... when my little one gets into sports. no need having it as a paperweight for the time being. my 85L is fulfilling the paperweight role quite nicely for the moment.
