Re: 50mm 1.8 focus ring feels a little ruff turning?

Well it turns smooth with a tiny bit of resistance which feels normal but i do feel that it's touching the inner barrel when i turn it and i can hear light touching noise. It's probably nothing to worry about but i figured i'd get input from this community.

I also compared it just now to the 18-55 and the zeiss 24, the 18-55 also i can feel that it touches a bit so it's mostly likely normal for these sony lenses(i guess). The zeiss however feel silky smooth with almost no touching of the inner barrel when turning, but i guess you can't compare a $1000 lens with a $300 lens.


How does your AI-S lens compare to this lens(sharpness, color)?

When I got mine in the focus ring turned smooth as butter. Same consistency of an old Nikon AI/AI-s, but was dampened a lot more.
