80-200 AF-S Problem?

  1. I just received a used 80-200 AF-S in mint. condition.
    The manual focus ring is gritty when turning it. Is this normal for this lens?
  2. I just checked mine. This does not appear normal. When I turn my manual focus ring from one end to the other, it is smooth.
  3. I don't have one but a similar issue came up with someone else's new/used 180/2.8. Is the focus selector on your body on M? If not, that could account for the grinding.
