What to look for in used lenses
I don't have enough knowledge / experience to know what I should be checking a lens for when buying a used one. Any tips and advice would be much appreciated.

It should definitely be tight. Probably dropped or my other wild guess it's missing an o-ring seal. There should be no movement there at all.breads wrote: ↑ Update - so I purchased a used lens from a retailer in the US, and had it shipped here. Saved a bit this way (would have been more but I didn't factor in the duties and taxes at the border).
Seems to be working fine based on my initial look so far. But I did notice that something seems loose / is moving.
I've indicated on the attached pictures where the movement is, and the two pictures show how much it moves (it's not a lot).
Does anyone have any thoughts on what it could be?
I'm hoping to take it to Henry's on the weekend to get looked at, but if this is a sign that I should return the lens (and take the hit on the duties I paid), I'd rather know sooner than later.
