    I found two metal pins, like staple pins, on the edge of an internal element of the lens. The interesting thing is they are not on the opposite positions. Say one pin is on 12 o'clock, and then the other is on 3 o'clock. Please see the pictures below for details.

    Would you please help me check if your copy is the same? Appreciate!

    I see, so it is by design rather than a defect.

    Thanks!
