Silly question reg. 18-55mm mk2 lens...

To be perfectly honest, i have issues taking off the 1.7 "nifty-fifty" of the camera, just love that thing to tears.... But whenever traveling I still get to use the 18-55...

The problem is that during my last trip I found that it had troubles focusing in infinity at 18mm... A notch of 18mm (let's say at 19+), all perfect, but at 18 it just keep hunting... Had to switch to MF... Is it normal or it's just my copy freaking out? I know it's the kit lens and stuff... I'm not planning to using it that much, eventually will get the 10-20 and 16-50... but meanwhile...

B.t.w. I had the GX-1L a while back with the kit 18-55 mk1 as well... haven't noticed these issues...
