Re: does the 18-55 vII have smoother/more consistent zoom ring action than vI?

I have the vII, the focus ring is non-mechanical so should feel the same, the zoom is still stiff in the longer ranges but i think its intentional since the zoom range change is not linear and so it has more resistance to fine tweak at the longer ranges. Its pretty much the same lens except with an iFN button rather than an OIS one, although i never used a vI version.
