Hi guys. i just got my HS30 today and im wondering about the zoom. I read there are some hs30 with zoom problems and id like to know is myne one of them and should i return it. The zoom ring is bit loose, it moves like 1mm is this normal ? and the zoom itself sound bit harsh like it would need lubrication and at 120mm theres a step. So how fixxed the lens should be and how smooth and silent should the zoom be ?

Some have mentioned this before and then with time the lens has got better. My copy is silent and smooth and no steps whatsoever.  Depending on how long you have if you want to return it, give it a few days and see if it improves. If not then get it changed.
