It's early days, but I *think* the latest firmware update for the 35mm lens fixed my chatty aperture problem...

I've got the latest firmware on the body + lens and still get this chatter from the blades when first turning on the camera and when using the DOF preview.  This happens when it goes from a stopped down state and opens up in stages...tick-tick-tick-tick-tick.  Is this the dancing/chatty aperture blade noise people are talking about?
