22mm f/2 focus noise?
« on: January 02, 2014, 01:56:22 AM »
Hi

I just bought a secondhand 22mm pankcake for my eosm and noticed the lens makes a bit of noise when focussing. I have the 18-55 is lens and it seems completely silent so it makes me wonder if i've picked up a duff? The lens seems to work fine otherwise, if someone with the lens could confirm if it should focus silently or not it would be much appreciated.

Many thanks
An

It does make a little noise, yes (also when you switch the camera on or off).  And you're right, the 18-55 is almost completely silent - I hadn't noticed that before.  The 40mm pancake makes a similar sound when focusing.

Ive never noticed a peep. If its the same noise that occurs when the M is powering down (retracting) then likely nada to worry about.
Be the best you, screw everything else.

Dear AbsN.
No, My SOS-M and 22 mm Lens just have a faint moving sound when turn on--Expand, and turn off, Retract= Just the moving sound of the Machanical part---Not When the lens try to focus = No sound at my Old ears at all.
GFood luck.
