DP2M focusing groan

Hi all,

I have recently purchased a second hand DP2M.

The camera is (externally at least) in good condition; the lens is sharp as advertised.

However, it exhibits the same type of focusing noise as can be heard emitting from the camera used by Steve Huff in his YouTube review of the DP2M.

Here is the video, linked to the relevant time (@about six minutes): https://youtu.be/ZlyYrwqCseA?t=361

Does anyone here have a DP2M which makes that noise? NOT the clicking noise. I know it's an old(ish) camera, and I also know that Sigma's have somewhat of a reputation for making mechanical noises. But still, I am a little concerned.

Interested to hear opinions. Worth keeping? Sound indicative of soon-coming failure? Not a problem, just something to live with (camera's character)?

Thanks!

Sigma DP2 Merrill
