Default Olympus C750: loosely fixed lens tube

Is it normal that for Olympus C750 UZ cameras to have loosely fixed lens tube? I've just got one and notice that the lens tube is not tightly fixed to the camera body. Actually, when I turn it around upsidedown, I soft of :x hear the lens tube slide back. With the lens cap on, I can also feel the wobbling motion of the lens tube when I lightly tap the cap. What is going on? Is it a bad unit that I have got? :roll:

No you do not have a bad unit. This is the way the zoom lens was engineered.

If you're worried about damaging it, you can get a rigid filter adapter that screws onto the body and will serve the additional function of protecting the lens--but it does add some protrusion to the front of the camera when you try to store it.
