Just got my 18-55 for my XP1 (very impressed). But I have noticed that sometimes it omits a very high-pitched whine when focusing. Has anyone else noticed this? Or did I get a bad one? I really don't want to return it, but I don't want a defective lens either. Please respond yes or no.

Thanks in advance.

I had an intermittent screech like something was scraping or sticking when I would half-press the shutter. It's quite hard to explain but it was quite distinctive and different to anything I'd ever heard from any other lens I've had, so I returned it. The replacement doesn't make the same noise.

I haven't heard any noise like this from my lens.  I think it was a good idea for you to return it.
