Jerky kit lens
Dec 21, 2011

I recently bought an A33 and the 18-55 is rather rough and jerky zooming in the 35-55 range. The 55-200 is smooth and doesn't tend to jerkily twist the camera in video; the 18-55 is tough to deal with. I though it might loosen up with use but so far no luck.

Is this normal or do I have a substandard one? Otherwise the lens is fine and optically is far better than expected, as is the 55-200 which is a real treat. I could go back to the store and try a different one but I think they're almost sold out.
