New Zeiss Loxia Friction

I just bought a7s with Loxia 50mm, moving to Sony, yay!

The focus ring on my Loxia makes a little sound like two metals touching, ( Friction sound )
It is smooth from the beginning, a bit heavy on the middle, then again smooth till infinity.
The sound is biggest when I focus in the middle.

Is this normal for this lens or should I get it checked?

I've used manual vintage lenses before this, and never got this sound.
That's why I'm worried.


The sound is nothing notable, but when you put it to your ear you can hear it clearly.
