What's that noise about?

Part of the OIS is always on keeping the moving part of glass in place, hence the little humming.

Some people hear it, some don't but it's there


Yes if I hold the lens/camera up to my ear I here something along with some clicking at times. A few inches away from my ear I hear nothing.

If my eye is at the viewfinder I don't hear it or I don't notice it.

I've never noticed any sound when looking through the viewfinder (other than the beep for focus lock of course).

I have X-E1, X-T1 bodies and 18-135mm OIS and 35mm f/1.4 lens to test.

X-E1 + 18-135 OIS = Humming

X-E1 + 35mm f/1.4 = No Humming

X-T1 + 18-135 OIS = Humming

X-T1 + 35mm f/1.4 = No Humming

Humming is like CPU fan whirling noise.

Answer is clear - it is not X-E1 or X-T1 which is Humming. It is the OIS lens which is causing the noise.
