Problem with Lens Canon 17-55 2.8
I bought a new lens,
But I think there is a problem.
Friction movement of the wheel unevenly all the way
I turned the wheel zoom from 55mm to 17mm in 20mm has such moves more smoothly.
From 17mm to 20mm this soft, from 20mm to 55mm is fine.
Does anyone know it it should be?
I'm not 100% sure if what you are experiencing is normal. I'd go back to where you bought it and try another sample for comparison.
In my case, the zoom ring on my 17-55/2.8 IS isn't smooth (i.e., take the same amount of torque to move) throughout the focal range. It dust take a bit more torque to move at certain lengths than others. I get a bit of that with my 17-85 IS and 24-105/4L as well.
