Louder Blades Sound on 14mm f1.8 GM

Hi friends,

I just received my 14mm 1.8 GM. Upon testing, I have noticed that when stopping the lens down to 2.2 and smaller, every time I half-press to focus, the lens produces a sound as it stops down to the selected f-stop. At 1.8 and 2.0, it is almost silent, but then again, it’s already wide open and the blades aren’t moving. All my other GM lenses are virtually silent in comparison. Well, they also produce the same sound at a really quiet place. But this 14mm is a tad louder. Is that normal behavior?

Thanks in advance
