    I've got the 35/2.8 and the 55/1.8, and the 35 focus ring seems to take a lot more effort to turn, while the 55's is really smooth.

    I'm wondering if anyone with both lenses can chime in and let me know if that's normal or if it's something I should be concerned about.

    Thanks!

    That's normal.
    My 55's focus ring has much less resistance too.
