Does this lens have the battery drain problem when attached to the body?

I'm asking because I put m 60d away about 3 months ago with the lens on. Camera switched off. Camera didn't power up, but it did so with my second battery. The only thing I'm not sure of is how drained the battery was when I put it away.

Even if a camera is powered off, it isn't really 100% off. Besides that, only issues I've seen of battery drain have been with lenses that have VC.

I used to have that same lens, no issues for me. The camera could sit for quite a while in the camera bag with the lens attached and the battery was fine when I turned the camera on.

If you're really worried about it, just flick the SD card door open when you put the camera away. My old 550D/T2i used to mysteriously drain the battery when stored for a week or so, but opening the card door solves this
