It's at least worth having checked out. My nice copy suddenly started with that loud sound when turning the focusing ring, it's only at 70mm and I remember a guy here complaining about that sound when shooting video. It should have none of these issues.
And for a 2470 lens they should make sure it's the best possible build.
Thanks for the input. Yeah, I agree - I do not know what makes that sound, but it sure could be a start of a big problem down the road.
Did you have yours repaired or did you just get a new copy?
The first "clicker" I had I replaced within days, when I posted in a thread here and people said theirs didn't make that sound. But the "Boooarp" sound mine now makes at 70mm when manual focusing, I just ignore. I don't use mf nor video, so it's not a practical issue.
