I'd like an opinion on a problem I'm seeing with a used lens. There is a noticeable "squeak" when the lens tries to auto focus close, and also if the lens hunts through the near range during auto focus.
This is a used lens from KEH and I need to decide quickly whether to keep the lens and just accept the noise, or if this is a sign of a more serious problem. The condition was advertised as "bargain" so I wasn't expecting perfection, but the squeak has me worried.
Canon says they would have to examine the lens to give me an estimate on repair. I sent email to KEH to see what assistance they can offer.
The lens is a 300mm f/4L (non-is) and otherwise seems to work fine.
Any thoughts on AF squeak?
