How normal is this? Am I sending the lens back?

I've had the 24-105mm for only about a month but have not had any issues like you describe with yours. My lens works reliably, focuses quickly, is quiet in operation. It sounds like something is wrong with your lens to me.

Mine works flawlessly, other than this small issue I noticed.

If its possible, could you try the steps I mentioned?

Face cam to sky, jiggle for a second, then turn on the cam while still facing up. What happens?

Thanks a ton.

I tried three times, but I did not have the problem you described. After turning the camera on there were no irregular sounds, and when I turned the camera from facing upwards to facing forwards and looked through the viewfinder, it looked normal and focused quickly when I half-pressed the shutter.
