Rotational play in CV joint

Should there be any rotational play in a CV joint? I never recall seeing any before, however this RH CV joint has quite a bit and I'm wondering if that's the source of the vibration under power.

I don't really want to go to the trouble of pulling the other CV joint to compare unless I have to.

I have a lot of free play in my defender to. If I jacke one wheel and try to turn it it has 1/5 of turn of free play. So this would be the splines fault?

Not necessarily all down to splines .. play at the wheel is from cvjoint, halfshaft, diff pinion/crown, UJ's, transfer input, transfer to gearbox etc ... more than one connection, and all wear eventually!
