No, I mean the same. You have to overcome some "resistance" until you can smoothly zoom.

Hi, the zoomring itself is fine, it seems it is the lens barrel itself. I don't think described that that clear enough in my description.

I have the same problem and to my experience all Panasonic zooms except the 7-14mm and the 14-140mm face some stiffness.

I heard, that with some usage the zoomring smoothens.

In that respect Panaosnic zooms should have better build quality. (But then they will be more expensive.)
