flex. Now that an interesting word. I assume you mean that after pulling back it then extends very slightly. At least that is what mine does.

But mine does not show any binding or stiffness, so I would say that is not so normal. If you don't feel or hear any grinding or anything like that, and if the binding is not too severe, I would just wait and see if it loosens up with use. But don't wait too long, you want to make a decision before your warranty runs out.

Thank you Both yes I also notice the little shuffle at the wide angle end 35-24. But the stiffness starts at 70 up to 120 it does notseem to be binding. Maybe like you say will wait a while and see if it eases up. again thank you for your reply.
