Hi I just bought the F80 and a Nikkor 28 - 105mm to match.

As I was putting my Cammera down on my night table, after reading the manual before I turned in for the night, I noticed that the interior barrel moves perpendicular to the focal length axis in all directions. I can wiggle it around about 0.5 mm in each direction. This doesn't seem normal to me, so I though I would check with my fellow Nikonians, before I went back to my shop devastated that they sold me a lemon...=(

I know the 28-105mm is quite popular with this camera, so for those that own it, could you check if yours has some play room too ?

Please respond, so that I can sleep at night....
Let me know

Thanks,...

Jacek
