noise when turning the focus ring of NIkon 24-70, both old and new lenses

Hi,

I placed order for the two versions of NIkon 24-70 f/2.8 this holiday. When I manually focused, I can hear sound from the rings on both lenses. Is it normal? I did not have such a experience on Nikon 20mm f/1.8 or the 70-300mm PF or 24-85mm

Here is a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ny-uuxybpiw&feature=youtu.be (not sure if I can place youtube link here, if not I will remove it)

BTW: there are a lot of reports that the 2.8G version may have stiff zoom. Is this issue resolved on the new 2.8E?
