Quick question for you guys that have the lens. I picked mine up from my bag today and noticed it was making this clicking sound when I was putting it on the camera, if I just hold the lens horizontal and move it to vertical, even slowly, it will make the sound. Now I think this is normal and is coming from the IS, but I just don't remember it doing this before. Do yours do it to?

Nobody?

If I understand correctly what you mean by "clicking" sound then yes it's the IS kicking in..

Actually, it does it when the lens is off the camera, like something is looser than it should be inside.

It sounds like the IS mechanism didnt lock before you removed it from the camera, thus the floating IS elements are "floating" around

Happened to me a few times...

Yes

And how do I make it lock? I tried leaving it on the camera, not depressing the shutter button (IS not being used) and then turning the camera off but it still makes the noise.

Turn your camera on, Spool up the IS, wait for it to spool down completely, then turn the camera off and remove the lens

THat should lock the IS, When its happened to me i just got a bit too quick turning my camera off without letting the IS power off first

Yep, tried that, still making the noise. Everything seems to work correctly so I won't worry about it.
Thanks again for the help :)

^ Nice. You guys have some odd looking bees though (color wise). :)

Yeah I have no idea on what variety this one is, but we have the regular kind too :cool:

Thanks.

No, I didn't use any filters for this shot. The flower was facing towards the sun; the golden background is from sunlight falling on parking lot wall. Rest of the tones were enhanced during post processing.

Never done that and didn't have a problem with any camera tested with the lens.. I just make sure that the camera is closed wait a couple of seconds and then remove the lens..
