The lens takes amazing pictures. The small sound is nothing to worry about if you dont record in silent environment. For the price I got it for (219$) you will never find anything close to this lens quality!
It seems that the rattling noise is normal because I tested several lenses from different stores and they all make it. Maybe I am too sensitive to those sounds because almost nobody noticed it. But all arround its a REALLY great lense for the price I paid!! I bought it at best buy to check the sound (which was there) and it is really more expensive at best buy!
I just foud out that it is making a rattling sound when I zoom in video mode (it is not from the IS). It is loud enough to be heard in the video so it is bothering...
The shipping box was dammaged so maybe it is the cause. At the beginning I tought it was not important because the inside box was ok, but now that I foud that it's making a weird noise, it makes me nervous..
Imay have to return it but it is really sad because I loved it!!!
I must say that I am amazed that I had this deal !
The lens is brand new, in the original box and with the warranty card. Everything is original.
I was hesitant to buy at the beginning because there was a so big difference between the seller price (218$ CAD) and the price at best buy (399+tax), but I am glad I took the decision to buy it!
I just had the chance to try it a little and everything seems A+. The lens is sharp, autofocus is really fast and you almost can't hear it (a true STM, not like the Canon 24mm lens). I will keep you update if anything comes up, and also for the performance of the lens. But from my first impression, I think it is the best lens that I could have bought for this price.
I bought it from the seller Canadian Dealz and everything went well and it is shipping with amazon prime, so it is a big plus.
I already love it!
Images are sharp and clear. Lens is very quick and accurate in focussing. Image stabilization do its job very well.
