Question about X10 zoom ring behavior
Jun 7, 2012

I just got an X10 and notice an odd behavior with the zoom ring. The zoom ring does not stay solidly in the off position. With just a little bit of pressure, it turns to a position ¼ of the way between the off position and the 28mm mark, and stays in this semi-on mode with the orange focus- indicator light blinking.

Also, It's not a consistently smooth turning movement when going from off to 28mm, or 28mm to off. There is a rough spot ¼ of the way between the off position and the 28mm mark.

Is this common?
