Re: Does my new 16-55mm f.2.8 sound normal?

Here is my suggestion to you, and no I haven’t had the chance to test the lens as you wish...I don’t have enough time right now (and you can search my posts and see that I asked the same question about the AF motor a few months ago). Go get a new copy. If you have to purchase it so that you possess both at the same time, please do so - I had to do the this with my favorite internet/brick and mortar Fuji supply retailer (and please don’t tell me to support local as there are ONLY two retailers selling Fuji in metro Chicago and neither are anywhere close to me).

Perform your tests with both and see what the new one brings, noise-wise. If neither are acceptable, try it again with another copy. The lens, I read, was optimised for many capabilities including using it for shooting video.

I could go on and on how awesome it is, but I have posted my opinion of it else where in the community.

Good luck!
