Just got a copy of the XF 55-200mm; can owners speak to zoom creep?

So I just got a brand new copy of the XF 55-200mm and it appears that there's just a little bit of zoom creep on my copy. I'm wondering if this is normal or if my copy might have an issue.

On the wide end (55mm) if I face the camera downwards, the lens creeps to about 57mm (with hood) and no creep without

On the tele end (200mm) if I face the lens upwards, the lens creeps to about 135mm (with hood) and 190mm (without hood)

It's not a deal breaker by any means, I just want to know if this is within design specification. Can owners of this lens please chime in about their experience with this?
