Need Help Quick! - Olympus Digital 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 ED

Hello Everyone,

I just received this lens (Olympus Digital 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 ED) from KEH and I need to know if it's defective as soon as I can (it's part of a gift...) but I have no way to test it until the weekend.

The lens was listed as "name ring missing" by which they meant the front facing (cosmetic?) ring and not the zoom or focus rings. When "zooming in" the lens extends an empty plastic barrel. Can anyone verify that there really are no glass lens elements that extend when zooming in on this lens? I couldn't find a picture online of this lens with the barrel extended. Someone must have this lens around since it was the kit lens for a lot of old cameras starting with the E-400.

Please help ASAP if you have this lens.

Thanks!
