Hi,

I just puchased this lens used but in good looking condition. However, on mounting it to my Canon 7D and trying it for the first time, the lens emits a very loud whining noise when the OSS is operational, in both mode 1 and 2. It's silent when off.

Just thought I'd check, but I assume this is a fault? I have 14 days to return the lens anyway, but obviously my return options are slightly different if it's actually faulty.

Some lenses give a very faint whine (most soundless, or nearly so), so you should return it.
