Possibly damaged focusing ring - DP2 Merrill DP2M
1

I just got my used DP1 Merrill from japan and it sounds like the focusing ring has some internal damage. I can still rotate the ring, but it is not pleasant to use and it makes it hard to focus (potential future focusing issues aside). It also makes unpleasant noise when the ring rotates.

I have posted a video of how it sounds and how much effort it takes to turn, comparing my DP2 Merrill.

What do you guys think? Is this fixable? Is that a known problem?

I already contacted the ebay seller (who advertised it as "operates smoothly" - yea, sure).
