Re: Quiet Video Lenses For X-T3

I have several of these and a few more.  The 23 1.4 and the 35 1.4 are very loud.  The mic, especially on the 35 picks up the focusing noise a lot.  In a loud room it should be ok but if the room is quiet it is REALLY annoying.

The 16-55 f.28 is 100% silent and the 18-55 is also silent.

Some on the forum say the noise on the 23 and 35 is overstated and for photos I agree.  But for video, unless you are using an external mic off camera, the noise is picked up by the camera mic.
