So I recently picked up a 16-35 II used. I checked the glass and the inside of the lens, and it was in extremely good condition, seems like the man hardly touched it, no signs of wear and tear at all, date code is uv so it is about a 5 year old lens. My concern is, I just got done doing my first shoot with it and I realized it makes a small clunking noise when it auto focuses is this normal? and when I move it around it sounds like something is a little lose inside. Does this happen with anyone elses 16-35? The lens also came with the blank warranty card, can I still use this even if its been 5 years old?

Thanks, Angelo

I don't think mine clunks, but I also would not worry too much if it is working.

The Canon warranty is for one year from the date of purchase, which one establishes by showing Canon a copy of the store receipt. The warranty card itself has no real purpose as you can get work done under warranty without one so long as you have the receipt and are within the warranty period.

Your five year old lens is far outside the warranty period and Canon will not fix it under warranty.

yeah the lens is fine, and it is wonderful, I feel like its crispier than my old 24-70. I guess I can take it to a samys or send it in to canon to see if there is something really wrong with it.

I have been using my 16-35 II since 2009; it should not produce any sounds other than the camera click...

Well, mine makes a very small noise when changing apertures while shooting video, but it's hardly perceptible. When auto focusing there's no clicks, just sounds like um two peices of paper sliding across each other.

Mine's quiet too... I'm the only thing that goes "clunk" between lens and camera... :)
