Default Z1 Wide angle lens adapter

Does the wide angle lens adapter help with the lens wobble?

Default DiMAGE Z1 Lens Rattles/Noises

So someone elses lens wobbles. I have just taken delivery of mine and the carton looked as if it had been in the ring with Frank Bruno.
I thought it must be knackered - obviously not.
Is this normal then?
Mine rattles like buggery and it sounds awful when you zoom in and out.
God knows what video soundtracks are going to be like.
Anyone else got a solid/quiet one?

Don't worry.
1) ALL Z1's lenses wobble. Noone has complained about bad pictures quality because of the wobble. The adapter will protect it just against "direct" smash but it will protect (with a filter) against scratch.

2) When You use the camera You will hear two different noises. The zoom and the "continuous" autofocus.

When You will film You will hear only the autofocus moving all the time but the zoom will work only without sound. So....
