FS5 18-105 zoom issues - solved!
 
I received my FS5 today. It's used, but looks to be in excellent condition.
Except...

The kit zoom has an issue.
When I zoom in, all is well.
But when I zoom out, there is a slight hitch, then the zoom continues. The zoom will pause, then move on about 1/4 of the way through the zoom. It does this whether using the camera and grip handle zoom controls and the zoom control on the lens itself.

Anybody experience this?

I just tried the lens on my Hasselblad Lunar (an E-mount camera) and it zoomed just fine.

The lens hesitates for a moment when zooming out from Clear Image zoom to the optical zoom. Is the issue you're having something other than that?

Duh!
I'm an idiot!

Yes, it was clear zoom.
Many thanks, Nate!

I guess we can keep this thread active in case someone else has this "issue."
