lens noisy at certain lengths

12 years 11 months ago #3013 by sagarbhandare
I have the 16-50 2.8 lens it came highly recommended. If you know this lens you know how quiet it is. Well, recently mine’s gotten a bit noisy when it’s all the way out to 50 and the AF does not seem to be working as well. Any ideas on why this might be and if it’s an easy fix? Very quiet at 16 but now at 50 the AF is a bit noisy. The lens is going on 2 years old.

You might try resetting the lens, if this does not work I would send it in. The shims in the lens might need to be greased.

Great advice I agree

Thank you, I was thinking it'll probably have to be sent in. I did try resetting it and that didn't work.
