nikon 28-70 zoom ring sticking
Nov 29, 2012

Just received a "new to me" used Nikon 28-70.  Snapping a few shots it looks great, but immediately I noticed while zooming around 35mm, the zoom ring sticks/grinds/stiffens.  No noise, it just takes a bit extra effort to turn it, particularly if going wider (zooming closer isnt quite as bad).

This is my first experience with this particular lens, is this normal?  Im still within a return window for a defect, so I want to make sure I jump on sending it back if necessary.
