I believe you need to turn OFF the AF on this lens as it is not a FTM (full time manual focus) lens. There should be a small switch on the lens itself that goes between AF and MF.
Hey, I know that much! I'm dumb, but I ain't that dumb.
What I think happened was when I put on the lens hood, the lens became somewhat loose or something. I took it off and put it back on (the lens) and the sound went away and everything focuses fine.
Anyone know where to find the audio metering in the menus? It has audio metering, right?
Ah, ok. Just checking.
No clue, it may. You'll have to check in the menu. Oh, hey, it came with a manual, right? Try reading the manual
hmmm i was just checking on the FTM thing
they say here it is FTM for stills
That's cool, didn't know that about the shorty forty. I gotta get me one of those. I've heard it's pretty darn good quality, and for $200 it's a good buy.
