Hi,Just this morning I realize there's a strange issue with my Fuji 18-55 lens. When I try to rotate the manual focus ring on the right half of the lens, it clatters as if there are some dust particles between the manual focus ring and the lens barrel.

Having a hard time deciding between the 35mm lens and the 18-55mm lens for the XE-1. I plan at some point to get an addtional lens -either now or when another lens comes out.

Thanks for your input and discussion guys.
