I can feel a small amount of play in the barrel in my 12-100  when extended 
that I had not noticed, but no real rattle.  Sounds like a return is the right 
move.  I would check the return for decentering--nice method on FM.  Siggie up 
their game on QA and allows for adjustments during construction resulting in 
fewer lemons.   Olympus has said they reject lens designs that are sensitive to 
small perturbations in construction to avoid returns.  Roger at Lensrentals has 
been told by manufacturers that it is usually cheaper to throw the lens out and 
ship another then to fix it most times when it comes to issues like decentering.

No rattle but imperfect, Mike
