Do you mean the IS stays on for a few seconds after taking the picture ? If so, then that seems to be normal for this lens.
The same happens if you half-press the shutter, the IS enables, and will stay enabled until a couple of seconds after you release the shutter button.


Hope this helps.

I have owned this lense for about five months now and it does stay on for about a second after shutter is pushed.

I've got the same lens. IS will stay on for about 2 seconds, regardless of whether you hit the shutter or not. What's the worrry? Is it really noisy or something? Mine's not.

I've found it a very well-built and awesome lens. For me, it's much better than the non-IS Sigma version it replaced.
