Is my new 16-50mm ok?
11 months ago

So I got my 16-50mm today. Tried all the standard tests I perform and its great. The one thing I am not sure about is the zoom ring which is harder to turn compared to all other lenses in my procession and ones i have tried. Even the focus ring is harder to turn but feels natural. I just assumed its becoz of the lens build than anything else.
