Hi, I just noticed this noise on my 16-55, usually when my shutter speed is below 1/125 and auto aperture, was it ever worked out if this is normal?

With some lenses used in shutter priority, when the shutter speed is low enough that the camera chooses a small aperture, they can make a small sound which I think is the aperture closing. However it's not particular to that lens as far as I know. I shoot AP so I would not get the noise anyway. I have not heard of the 16-55mm f2.8 making any sound.

The 18-55mm XF had a similar problem I believe which was the aperture closing.
