Oly 12-45 Pro: zooming noise, issue?

I just received my Oly 12-45 Pro lens and took a series of real subject test pics. The optics seem first rate across all FL and even wide open. The manual focus and zoom are smooth with no slop. However, I have noticed during zooming there is more of a rubbing or fiction type noise across the range then with most other lenses I have. No zoom roughness, etc. Is this typical for weather sealing or a flaw. My 12-40 is quieter. Somewhat reluctant to return since the optics, focus seem excellent and everything is nice and tight and the lens seemed to survive a very poor packaging for shipment. A replacement could be ???. Thoughts, etc?
