Hi, I just received my first ever Nikon speedlight, the SB700. When unboxing I noticed a "bump" and have discovered there is a small amount of play on the flash head. It moves slightly side to side when locked in the forward position and its enough movement to be noticeable while handling the flash.

Just wondering if this is normal for the speedlights with rotatable heads or is the unit defective? Otherwise, the flash works perfectly. Thanks.
