went back to the store today and they had none left in stock. They are back ordered for the end of the month, so i left with the same lens! normally i wouldn't care about a squeak but i just don't know if its affecting something inside the lens (heard some horror stories) so now i might have to send it to canon to check it out grr :mad:

Mine is pretty much silent. Tight zoom ring too with no slop.

I used to have a slight squeak with my 24-70 version I but It didn't bother me as I thought it was possibly part of the weather sealing.

Zoom ring is solid on this, tight and no play at all. nothing else is wrong apart from that annoying little squeak but i think i'm being a bit to pedantic about it and should just shoot with the bloody thing haha

Nathan, I have the same squeaky noise between 24 and 28 that your lens has. Bought mine last week, and although the optical quality is great, I am very disappointed with the build, especially given the cost. I'm not sure if the squeak is a problem, but I might go back to the store to see if other new lenses have it as well.

I hope that the squeak isn't a problem! it hasn't seemed to make any difference with the lens so far. Zoom ring is nice and solid feeling. If you go back to the store let me know if other new ones has the same thing!

I was disappointed with the it as well when i first got it. i thought after spending 2 grand id expect it to be perfect like how my 70-200 2.8 IS II is. But the lens is damn sharp right across the frame, its just that bloody squeak haha

Mine does not zoom smoothly either but it does not squeak.

I just checked mine and it had a little squeak... From 28mm to about 24mm. This was something that recently developed though... It was not there before, I am sure.

However, after I cleaned the exterior of the lens by wiping down all the surfaces with Meguiars interior detailer spray - http://www.amazon.com …ailer-Spray/dp/B001B0XDXY (external link) - (how I always clean all my bodies/lenses, safe for plastics/rubber/etc... I usually just spray a very light mist on a microfiber and then wipe down) ... And after I wiped down the extending cam of the 24-70 II, the squeak stopped. My guess? The seal that protects the internal components from any moisture/dust getting in. I am guessing when the extending barrel is dirty/clean or something, it may make the noise. But like somebody said above, I am quite sure it is just part of the weathersealing... Maybe a rubber gasket that glides on the barrel and such, if it gets dry or the barrel is dirty or has residue on it.

Either way, it went away after a 10 second wipe down to clean the barrel!

Thanks for that Invertalon, makes me rest more easy knowing that it just hasnt occurred in my lens and it must just be something of the norm! makes sense if its a rubber gasket making the noise!

Not torn...loose exactly.

I got response from a Canon service repair:
"Be sorry that you upset about Canon products .... But the rubber is not glued at any zoom lens! Whether expanded, it means that either was cleaned with substance "did not like", or because of salt in sweat hand."

My hand always is dry, and never clean the lens. I get it like a poor excuse for a bad construction of the lens.

Anyway, i find another topic on FM, a lot of people complain about this problem.

If you put your ear to the zoom ring and start turning you will hear what sounds like bushes rubbing against contacts. It's the zoom ring telling the lens (and consequently the camera) what focal length the lens is at. It's nothing to worry about, they all do it and over time it does dissipate to very quiet or even no sound at all. If anyone thinks this lens isn't robustly built then you need to read this:
