I picked up an 80-200/2.8 D 2-touch from KEH recently.

Last night, I noticed it has some play in the very front section of the lens barrel (the part that has the filter thread, the focusing scale, and the 2-position focus limit switch). If I grab that section and gently twist, there is just a bit of movement of that whole front barrel section.

Is this normal for this lens?
