So I have noticed that the AF is fairly loud. Tough to describe but it's like a higher pitched hum. Even when I turn the lens to MF and spin the focus ring by hand the hum and vibration is still there. It seems that the part that extends is rubbing when it moves causing the noise. I keep reading how everyone says it's quiet. I think I need to send it back. Thoughts?

That is normal. It is much quieter than the 50mm 1.8 II but it does make the same noise as the 24 STM and 40 STM.

The 18-55 STM, 18-135 STM, and 55-150 STM all have the silent type of STM.

Thanks for the clarification. This is my first STM lens.

I think you guys are being a little dramatic. It has a SLIGHT whine to it. Maybe you guys are just used to USM motors? The AF isnt very loud at all. It's louder than the stm motor of the 55-250 STM but MUCH quieter than the MKii. I LOVE it already!

The af noise was the first thing I noticed... I was merely panning around my room the first time I popped the lens on and found it loud. Then I shot video and it was very quiet autofocussing - and smooth of course, dittio for Live View touch focus.

The noise got my attention because of the quiescence of the 18-55 stm comparatively.

I like the lens a lot - I just need good subjects and immagination :-P

Mine makes that noise too, it sounds like a slightly louder IS... It is strange

That's a word that doesn't get used often enough.

No, the 50 1.4 is sharper @1.4 than the 50 1.8 @1.8.

Thanks for the reply, much appreciated

Used it shooting my 2 ½ year old playing around and I didn't find the AF having trouble keeping up in AI SERVO.
The only thing I could complain about, and I don't even want to complain because for the price of this lens there is nothing to complain about. It is a terrific lens! But if I have to, it would be that there is quite some CA when it's wide open, but then again, most lenses wide open produces this and it will be easily fixed with 1 click once a lens profile is available.

I may do the same thing since my Adorama order is still "pending" and the email I received from Helen yesterday said that Canon wouldn't ship to Adorama until today, which means who knows how long before they actually receive them and then ship them out.

You got it yesterday, right?

Got mine (wifes). I'd say one hell of a lens for $125. Not perfect but such a great performer. I'm pleased.

Compared to the 50A there really is no comparison as the 50A really destroys it however the 50STM has a center sweet spot that is sharp.

I need to MFA mine... it's a tad back focus. Barely but makes a diff.
