V1 - 18.5 f/1.8 Aperture Blades
Dec 12, 2012

I received the 18.5 F1.8 and have been shooting it on my V1.   Really liking the lens and I can actually can get some shallow DOF (finally!)

Has anyone else noticed that the aperture blade movement is a lot louder than the 30-110 lens.  (These are the only two lenses I own).  I am in a quiet office and can just barely hear the 30-110, people in the surrounding cubes can hear nothing.  They can hear the 18.5 a couple cubes away.

Wanted to see if anyone else is hearing the same thing?

I am running 1.20 firmware on the camera and I do not see any firmware for this 18.5 (v1.00) on Nikon's page.  I just wanted to see if anyone else hears the same.  If not, I will deal with Nikon service and have them check things.

Not trying to start another Nikon quality sucks thread!! I actually also have a D600 and the sensor has been FINE!  ~4000 shots and nothing.
