Hey everyone,

I just received the RF 70-200 f/4 lens. It seems to have a fairly noticeable rattle when the lens moves. Does anyone else have this lens and experiencing the same thing? Is this normal or should I consider this a problem with the lens?


I do get rattle noise coming from my RF 70-200 f4.  I have read a few post saying the new RF lens's will rattle and Canon says don't worry.  My RF 24-105 f4 L does the same along with my EF 70-300 L, my RF 24-240 has some but not near the rattle that the RF 24-105 or the RF 70-200 f4.

The EF 85mm f1.4 I had would rattle a LOT if taken off the camera with power on.  I had to wait the 15-20 sec ** till a full power down then it was OK.
