Just wanted to see if anyone else has experienced the same looseness in the lense when fully extended. It is very minimal and seems to be normal but I have never owned one so can't tell. I just bought it and I know you get what you payfor ($109)so can anyone confirm this or do I have to contact the store I bought it at. Since I am new to DSLR's I own the Tamron 18-200 and this prime, but the Tamron is very tight but smooth when used. Thanks in advanced

If by loose you mean The Manual Focus ring? or do you mean the mount feels loose on the camera itself.

If you mean the manual focus ring then yes there is a tiny amount of play, But it doesn't change the focus (When on Autofocus that is)
But the lens is solidly mounted on my D50 body.

Also Fully extended? not quite sure what you mean since the lens can't actually zoom...

Indeed, I cannot find any other kind of looseness other than the manual focusing ring, but that is very very minor.
