Sony 18-70 kit lens vibrates badly

\015 My Sony 18-70 kit lens mounted on A200 makes a loud vibrating noise when I turn the camera on or off, and when it tries to focus. Sometimes it goes away and the lens works fine, other times, the lens cannot focus. A beercan lens on same body has no issues.\015

Wobbly lens I have just purchased a Sony W130. It is my first ever camera. When the camera is off the lens section can be moved about 1/2mm with gentle movement of the camera. When zoom is fully extended it can be moved side to side by gentle pushing about 1 1/2mm. Is this normal or is the camera faulty? It doesn't seem to be affecting the pictures but everytime I use it I get a vibration warning on the screen.

I used the Nikon D90 with Lens Kit 18-200 mm, and I also bought the new Lens call Nikkor 75-300mm.

My Sony DSC-T200 also vibrates periodically. I've never dropped it, and 90% of the time, its functioning just fine, but once in a while (usually for the duration of a whole event that I'd like to take pictures at), it vibrates very much like a cell phone with ringer set on vibrate. It seems to be the autofocus lense since the focus of the picture is also oscillating with the vibration. Is there a tooth on a gear broken or something? Is this camera prone to this? Should I avoid Sony DSC cameras i
