Opteka 6.5mm 3.5 - is it normal for the manual focus ring to NOT focus?

Ok. Did I get a lemon?

I got an Opteka 6.5mm 3.5 - is it normal for the manual focus ring to NOT focus?

I was wondering if there anything wrong with the focus on the lens. I
cannot get it sharp or even change the focus. I attached it to a
friends canon and when i turn the focus ring there is not change
whatsoever on the image. It's like focus is stuck.Anyone else have the same experience or should I return?

Thanks

ps...this lens is also know as rokinon/samyang/bower 8mm fisheye for cropped cameras.
