I read the earlier review and note that the focus ring does have a small amount of play akin to the steering wheel response of my old mans 1964 HR Holden!!
BUT!! - After using the lens for the first time I've discovered that the "play" actually helps with fine manual focusing especially if you only want a very small increment of focus adjustment.
Wow!! I love this lens, don't know why I held off getting it for so long. Great colour, very sharp.
