    I am new to Nikon....bought a used 50mm F1.4D AF from a dealer & the rear element through to the front element seems to rattle when holding it off the body ....you can move it slightly side to side from the barrel.....when mounted on the camera rattle dissapears....seems sharp....does anyone out there have a 50mm that does this?

    Thanks All

  2. I have a 1.8 that has (had?) a loose barrel and focusing ring. It is now at Nikon being repaired under warranty (I've had it for almost 5 years. Four years ago Nikon told me " . . a bit of play is normal."

    Hopefully after a B2 repair ("Moderate Repair : Major Parts Replaced") it will fine!
