Aperature ring tight/loosness across XF range
1

I have the 35 mm and the 14 mm. I would call the ring on my 35 mm roughly correct, and the ring on my 14 mm very easy (too easy) to move.

Here are my questions.

How much is this a variable across copies?

For those who have used or own multiple lenses how would you rank the order of tightness?

(I also note that the focus ring on my 35 mm is a bit too tight... No FD or K mount lens I ever have owned had such sillyness)
