    Hi everyone, I was cleaning the rear element yesterday and noticed
    that when pressed slightly, it moves inwards (up to a point), then
    pops back out again - almost like it was mounted on springs or
    something. This is the first time I've noticed such a thing - my other
    (MF) nikkors all seem to have solid-mounted rear elements. Is this a
    fault or just a design feature? The lens seems to be performing fine.
    Has anyone noticed a similar thing?

    You asked this in the Nikon forum on There are some responses,
    why are you wasting hundreds if not thousands of dollars to post here?

    Whose "dollars" am I wasting, thought this is a photo forum where
    people contribute RELEVANT comments.
