    Dear All,

    I've just bougth a Panasonic 42.5/1.7 and there is a strange noise, actually a moving part within the lens when i shake it.

    Do you, owners of this lens, have the same moving part in your lens or is it mine which is defective ?

    Kind regards.

    It's the part of the O.I.S. that moves to compensate for camera movement.
    No worries.

    Shaking the Nocticron around also yields the sound of bits moving around inside.
