Bought a Adorama demo 17-55 a couple of years ago and recently I've noticed that I can hear and feel the elements or something moving when I zoom the lens. Is this normal? It sounds like something rubbing inside the barrel. I've never dropped or abused the lens but since it was a store demo maybe I bought a defective lens and never noticed it before. The lens works great, it's very sharp and my favorite dx lens used with a D2x and h.

D2x, D300s, D700 & D800
