Posted this in the TL section a day ago but haven’t had any response. Hoping for some feedback here. Just bought a second hand 11-23 zoom and there's a tiny (and it is tiny) bit of 'wobble' or play on the front section when it is fully extended.

Is this normal? Just checking because I can return it if it's not up to spec.

I know some lenses are like this, Olympus Pro zooms all seem to be pretty wobbly with no effect at all on the images.

Thanks.

You should check this problem with Leica service because 11-23 TL is absolutely super-solid lens.

I got a reply today from Jimmy Hughes at Leica Mayfair and he said that his display sample had a slight wobble also.

Thanks for the replies. Managed to find a copy which is better, with virtually no play so I’ve sent the other one back, although I must admit that it did not have any impact on the image quality which was superb.
