I just got this lens, it focuses on my D300s, quite fast and responsive actually, but is the somewhat grinding noise normal? Not like gears grinding noise but it is just noisy.. Anyone have any experience with this oens? Thanks!

The noise is when it goes from infinity to minimum focsuing distance when the barrel travels the whole distance..

i  just did a comparison test with my Nikon 50mm f/1.8 non d... and yes the 20mm is noisier hhmm..
