Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm 2.8 zoom ring

I've just received the brand new 12-35mm today from Amazon. I read many posts about how smooth the zoom and focus rings are. However, my focus ring is very smooth, but the zoom ring requires a little force to turn and does make a sound like it two pieces of paper rubbing together "sorry, I don't know how else to describe that sound". Although not loud, it's still noticeable whem I'm indoor.

Is is the normal behavior of this lens? Thanks
