This is about the non-IS version by the way.
I just received a used one, and I am noticing the zoom ring seems to be very easy to turn. I feel absolutely no resistance- almost like I could turn it easily with a pipe cleaner or something. Sorry, I was trying to think of something that most people could picture in their mind. LOL
I am very new to DSLR's, but I want to make sure this won't cause problems in the future, and it's not indicating something more serious. It's not so bad that it turns on its own though.
Thanks in advance for the help!
