faulty 17mm or normal ??

Hi, its been a while since I was on the forum. I sold my kit, as I was was not getting out due to bad health. Things have improved since then and I have just received my new EM5 mkII along with a 17mm 1.8 lens. I have had this lens before and loved it. But I can't remember if the manual focus ring had play in it as you rotate to focus ??? This one does have a slight bit of movement before it starts to focus, I really can't remember if my other one did this - I doubt it as I m sure I would of remembered; If they all do it then fine, it doesn't bother me, but if it isn't the norm I will get it swapped out.

Battery is on charge as I type this then I'm going out to play
