Clicking sound

I just picked up a Pentax-F 35-70 f3.5-4.5. I noticed that when I turn the focus ring (off the camera or in MF) it makes a light clicking sound. Does that indicate a problem? Thanks

Steve

My f 35-70 doesn't do that, so I guess it's a chipped tooth on a gear or something like that. Does it still operate okay?

Thanks. Yes, it seems to operate ok. Just wondering if this is likely to be a problem.

It's hard to say. If it's a cracked gear, it might give out completely, but if it's just a bit of dirt in the gearing, it might settle out with some use.
