brunton eterna 8x25
the focus knob is stiffer than i would expect. and there is a bit of play in it. after turning the knob one way, you have to turn 1/16 a turn or so before it 'catches' and begins focusing the other way. this makes it a little difficult to get sharp focus quickly.
my questions are: (1) is this normal, or do i have a bad pair?
(2)if normal, will the stiffness loosen up with use?

No, not normal - should not have that kind of play. Stiffness is a bit subjective - it might loosen up just a bit, but, in my expereince, never enough to stop being irritable if it is getting under your skin, now. I would contact our customer service and see about a replacement.
