Hi everyone, I just purchased a 70-200 IS 2.8 MK1 used. When IS turns on and off. There is a click but it is louder then my other lens. Should it be that much louder? Or is this normal for the MK1 version?

I made a video of the loud click. Anyone that had or have this lens have the same sound?

Depends to what degree. They're not supposed to make the loud clunking noises. Most suffer from from this though.

I'm not taking about the soft rice crispies crackling sound but the louder click once the IS is enabled. This is normal for most lenses? I'm trying to make sure before keeping the lens. The sound is not a deal breaker just if that is a sign of problems or a current problem. Sorry I'm paranoid and its a ton a money for myself. I appreciate all your help!

Is yours as loud as the lens that I have? Wonder why the lens would make the sound when other lenses don't?

Yes, it's as loud as on your video. The 70-200 is the only lens with IS that I have, so I can't compare to other IS systems. All I know is that other friends have the same 'noise'. Maybe it's a combination of IS and AF that causes the click?

The bigger the lens, the louder the "click", "clunk", "thump". or what ever you want to call it.

The 70-200mm 2.8 IS II also has the same noise.

I see, that's the reason for my 24-105 and 100L macro for not making the click, clunk or thump. Thanks for the help everyone.
