I was evaluating a TC-17E II 1x7 Teleconverter which I had rented prior to a potential purchase. I noticed that when my 20-200mm f/2.8 VR II was mounted to the TC there is a little side to side "play" in the coupling - between the lens and TC mounts.
So I then mounted the lens direct to my D800 and noticed the same thing, a small amount of side to side play. Is this normal? Has anyone else experienced this? I thought initially it might be a TC issue (wear etc. because it is a rented unit), but apparently not.
Thanks for any comments, observations, advice etc.
