I like how all the concern for this has died off. I still think finding out about which products are affected is extremely important.

My spring was replaced in my 24-70 II long ago, under warranty. Got the lens back from a repair and when the focus ring was turned, it would make a "spring" noise... Like boiiiiing!

Sent it in and they spoke with the engineers in Japan as they had no idea... And they wanted to be sure before they tore the lens apart... A month later or so, they got the part from Japan, replaced it (still the "old" spring, according to the repair... but this was probably before the fix) and the lens is fine. Interesting to see what it was though now!

For those claiming this as 'ammo'...  The complaints I've seen (and heard, including video) have all been about a clicking sound from the ZOOM ring, this post is about the FOCUS ring.  I trust that Canon knows the difference.
Mine makes clicking sound when zooming too... Wtf, mine is made in 10/2015

So if this is about the focus ring and not the zoom ring, my question is: Is there any leaked documentation about the zoom ring clicking sound then?
Hope to see too.
