Attention: all AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens owners--HELP!
I really like my AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR kit lens! It's tack-sharp, super-compact, and its VR really helps to make up for its slow f/3.5 aperture. I basically only shoot it at 18mm, so it's like having a $100 VR super-wide!
Quick question: for any of you that have this lens, is the front (internal) lens barrel (the part that contains the front element) supposed to be able to be moved left-to-right? Mine is able to be moved left and right by several millimeters. It's apparently hinged, and moves in a small arc. I thought I broke mine, and was about to buy another one, but all of a sudden the AF started working again! Just trying to determine if I actually did break something inside the front barrel mechanism or not. Seems to shoot just fine.
