Sorry to bring up this old thread, but how loud is loud. I just bought a 70-200 IS used and the IS is very loud...surprisingly so. my 17-55 is basically silent compared this. Im fine if its ok but just loud but I dont want this thing to die on me.
!

It's considerably loud.

Send it in to get fixed.

Should I do that for my camera to? It makes this weird "clunk" sound. It only happens whenever I press that shutter button thingy.

Thanks Crown, helps put it in perspective. It does "seem" to be working fine; just way louder than I expected. I remember when I switched from a 40D to a 5Dii I was blown away at the difference in the sound of the shutter. Hopefully I just need to get used to it and possibly will just stop noticing it.

Thanks everyone!

I was reading about the loud, clunky IS of the 70-200s when I was looking to pick mine up. And yes, it was way louder than I expected as well.

I'm already starting to forget about it :p.
