50mm 1.8 STM AF Noise... Really?!
1

I just picked up a 50mm 1.8 STM for my EOS M6, since I just gave away my trusty old 50mm 1.4 to one of my assistants. I was thinking that the 1.8 STM AF would be a better fit for the M6, since canon claims the STM motor is smooth and silent...

Have a look at the video here, and please let me know if this is "smooth & silent" : 50mm 1.8 STM AF Noise

Is this normal for this lens?! I have the 22mm EF-M, and it literally is smooth and silent, but the 50mm seems anything but. It also feels extremely slow.
