Zoom lens whirring noise WITHOUT shutter button pressed
Jun 26, 2014

On loading new firmware into X-E2 I noticed Zoom lens whirring noise WITHOUT shutter button pressed. With 55-200 it was quite noticeable. Do not hear this with 35mm f1.4.
I wonder if this is due to new firmware "fix":
Change of aperture display for zoom lenses – Display of aperture value when zooming with the shutter button pressed halfway will become same as the display when zooming without the shutter button pressed.
I appreciate the display of aperture/shutterspeed all the time (just wish Fixed focal length lenses would work the same, but just don't like the noise from the lenses. 55-200 is too loud. 18-55 is not as noticeable, but if it is making noise then in my opinion it is using energy and running my batteries down!
