I got a 40-150mm with my E-PM2. I tried it but I really hated how stiff the zoom action is. Do I have a bad copy or is everyone elses zoom action really bad? Maybe I am just biased because I use the 35-100mm F2.8 lens and its zoom action is buttery smooth.

The zoom on the M.Zuiko 40-150mm is stiff. It's stiffer than the M.Zuiko 12-40mm, the Lumix 14-45mm and the Lumix 12-35mm (I don't have the 35-100mm).

Since that zoom extend more than most other m4/3 zooms, could that be caused by some kind of protection against dust accumulation inside the lens?
