After viewing your combination on the Acquisition thread I fell victim to the B&H special price and ordered the 20~40 in silver for my KP.

It will be here Friday; along comes a posting thread . . . .
Congrats. Looking forward to your images.

The zoom ring on my NIB 20-40 is fairly tight, such that I cannot easily zoom with fingers under the lens. It feels over-damped. Is this normal or should I return the lens to B&H (fwiw I bought it on deal price - ATM they are out of stock of silver).

Mine is firm, but smooth. It doesn't cause any difficulty used with thumb and forefinger under the lens...

Yeah, so long as it's smooth in rotation, I don't suspect you have a problem. Just needs use... lots of use

Sounds about right.
The zoom is pretty stiff on my lens. It definitely will not get shifted unintentionally.

A cropped and resized pixel-shift of my macro setup. This 24MP sensor rocks!
edit: and so does the lens!

Might want to do a little proof reading before or after posting.
I corrected that in edit. I blame it on PF servers being slow... oh crap...
