I had one of these lenses years ago that developed the same feeling. After a short time, the lens "snapped" in my hands and had to go back for service. $240.

I'd have it looked at, is shouldn't feel much different between zoom directions.

I recently got the first version of this lens and it was completely serviced including all the weather seals were replaced. Its very easy to zoom in. But when I try to zoom out its very difficult too turn. Is it normal? Or is it because off all the air thats collected inside does not allow for easy turns? Any one who has experience with this lens have a similar problem? Beside that small "problem" I think produces some of the best sharp images.
