    I had the same on my Sigma 50-500, I read on here about a year ago it was common on some an not others, so I left it alone, two weeks ago I noticed a huge movement on it, looked closely at it and 3 of the 4 small screws needed tightened, a $1 glasses kit from the dollar store did the business, now no movement at all.

    I see this an old thread, but I too have been experiencing problems with my 200-500 lens. It looses connection regularly now giving me a f/0 on my camera and stops focusing. It is loose on both my D500 and D7200. Leads me to wonder what is actually going on with this lens if multiple people are experiencing related issues. My gear is about 2 years old.

    Are you using a strap that fastens to the tripod mount? Or are you using a strap that fastens to the lug nuts on the body? If it's the latter, that would put stress on the mount.
