DA 55-300 focus ring/noise question?
Jun 8, 2011

I have just taken delivery of a DA 55-300 lens. Is it normal that when rotating the focus ring at the end of the lens that it should be a little noisy? The best way I can explain it is that it sounds like a tiny bit of grit friction when you rotate the ring. It is however consistent so I wonder if this is normal.

Could anyone with a 55-300 do the same please and let me know. The larger zoom ring is fine, just this slight gritty noise when rotating the focus ring.
