works as it should, but I noticed the lens itself seems to JUMP when the mirror goes up and JUMP when it returns....I knew these things were loud and clunky, but a lens that literally MOVES, I wasn't in the the know about that....anyone have this happen to them?

Nope, have shot them for over 10 years now and never seen the lens jump, you don't happen to have the 105mm Nikkor on it do you, if you do, then your banging on the bottom of the mirror and causing damage, but never on any of my lenses have I seen the lens jump!, now my hands or a weak tripod head, I have seen them do this.

Its a great camera with good glass, have a ball.
