Pentax 21mm f/3.2 limited lens focus ring

Hello, does anyone know if the focus ring in the 21mm limited can be rotated while the lens is not attached to the camera? I don't have any pentax camera on hand (waiting for k-5 delivery) but already have 21mm limited and the 70mm limited. And while 70mm lens' focus ring rotates freely, the 21mm one wouldn't move at all. I am assuming the 21mm lens is broken?

never mind, had to apply lots of force to get it moving and now it's smooth. Pretty weird for a new lens...
