Lenses / Re: 24-70 II slight clicking sound when zooming
« on: December 20, 2013, 12:16:23 AM »
Does anyone with the lens experience the ticking sounds disappearing for a while then coming back?  For example, you hear ticking and put the lens down for a few hours, come back, and then the ticking is gone.  But then you put it down again, come back a few hours later, and the ticks are back again?  It seems random and I'm not sure what causes it....I don't think it's temperature since the lens is in the same environment the whole time.

Yeah I had a 03 (March) copy and returned it to B&H.  It would have the ticking sound and then it would disappear.  Then after moving the zoom barrel later you would hear it again so its possible.

I can't believe this thread was originally made in June.  Is there anyone who picked this lens up around Black Friday (via the $1799 sales @ B&H/Amazon) who has gotten a copy with the problem?  In other words, is it safe to order now, or is the problem still ongoing even now in early December?

It's all by luck, I've had ticking copies from 02, 04, and 06 serials. I got a ticking 06 in mid November and I was lucky my new 06 copy did not tick or squeak.

I guess 5th time is the charm, got a 06 again and this time no ticking, no bubbles on the lens, and no squeaking sounds from zooming in and out on the zoom barrel.

After returning the lens (Nov 2012 build) that had two tiny bubbles in one of the inner elements, I received the replacement from B&H yesterday. This one (a Feb 2013 build) is, as far as I can tell, perfect...completely silent with no clicking and very sharp optically. Yesterday, I saw a notice on Amazon that said that they were temporarily halting the sale of this lens due to there being a problem with their available stock, which led me to believe they've had a lot of these lenses returned with the clicking problem.

So your February has no sound at all even in a faint room?  I returned a March (03) build and got a February (02) build and this one has a faint ticking sound that occurs more often than the 03 build I returned.   Guess I'll have to swap out for the 3rd time *sigh.

Wow your clicking is pretty darn loud.  The clicking on my lens is intermittent after zooming in and out several times the faint clicking sound would disappear then after a while if you start playing with the zoom barrel again you'll hear the faint clicking sound but its no where as loud as yours.

I wonder how some of you guys were able to exchange more than once?  I just did a live chat with a rep today and they said they would only do a refund (no exchanges because I already did an exchange).  Anyone have the same experience with B&H?

strange... after zooming in and out several more times the faint ticking sound seems to have gone away.  Wonder if I should keep this now or wait a few more days of use?

Darn, i just got my 24-70mm ii replacement from B&H today (first one had 2 tiny bubbles within the lens) from the March 2013 batch.  Can definitely hear the ticking sounds in a quiet room when rotating the lens slowly.  Sucks to have to exchange for another copy again!
