Nikon 70-300 VR Hums or sings
Jul 13, 2011

I have purchased a Nikon 70-300 VR. This lens has a singing or a buzzing sound that I have never heard from any of my other VR lens. I know it is VR not VR2 and a Full sized lens, my others aren't.

Is this normal? Some times its loud enough that it is very audiable in a quiet room. I can always hear it if I hold it next to my ear. It also gives a loud click when you plress the shutter to auto foucs then clicks again when you release.

I ordered it from Amazon and I only have a few days left to return it.
