Again, they are all different. I have had a few 17-55s and they didn't all sound the same. It sounds like you are driving yourself crazy worrying about the IS vs enjoying what the lens can produce. I suggest you just send it in and just have Canon check it over. Nobody here is really going to be that helpful, as there is no real good test of determining whether an IS unit is on its way out or not.

Hey all, I just recorded the sound from mine. Please listen and tell me what you think!

My wife took a picture of me across the room at about 7 meters and I heard it...

This!

If you are expecting it to be silent like the 15-85, it's probably not a realistic expectation.

Is the Stabilisation working ? If so, don't worry about it, my 24-105L IS was also very noisy just like yours on your video and mine was new. If there was no noisy sound and IS not working, i would probably be more upset. I have also owned a 17-55 in the past and it was also noisy, just like the 24-105... the new Tamron 24-70 VC is much more quiet than Canon IS, from my experience...

Mine made same cassette type noise. It is normal for my lens. If the lens AF hunts too much, or if the lens stutters up and down like an earthquake, then it is then that the lens needs service.

Mine is very quiet, I don't really hear it. And I also had my hearing checked recently.
