Does your Oly 12-40mm 2.8 lens squeak?

Hello,

I purchased a Oly 12-40mm 2.8 lens and if you turn it slowly starting at 12mm it will squeak a little until about 16mm.  It will do this also when going from 16mm down to 12mm.  It almost sounds like the plastic lens barrel contacting with maybe the weather sealing in the lens? It only bothers me while recording video, but i figured I would ask anyway.

Thanks!
