    kit lens zoom action

    I've noticed that the 18-55 kit lens with the 5N has a few rough spots through the zoom range (mechanical action, not picture quality). By contrast the 55-210 I got is very smooth. When I first got the 18-55 I wasn't surprised as I've found most slr kit zooms to not have a particularly smooth feel. But with the 55-210 being so good I wondered if I just got a not-great example.

    You might have gotten a bad copy, the 18-55 that came with my Nex 5 is buttery smooth, both zoom and focus (they feel very similar) so maybe you can compare your zoom vs. focus and see if they are similar or different.
