H lewiedude2 and Vic, thanks for responding, would you guys mind testing your copy again, but with your aperture set to anything above f2.8, preferably f5.6, and test it in a environment thats not too bright so that the aperture will self adjust itself for enough light to your live view? I.e., When you half press the shutter to focus and then de-press, the lens aperture will step back to its widest, thats when the aperture motor sound is the most audible. Thanks again.

I tried mine at all apertures out the window and into the room and also at a lamp. Turned off all room sounds including the wife and could just about hear the aperture blades closing at small apertures. My wife was less than two feet away before she could here even the slightest sound from it. AF is just silent.
