whirring sound with Canon 55-250 IS !

  1. Hi,

    I just got my new 55-250 IS lens, very excited about that. :)

    However, doing my initial experimental shots, I heard a distinct whirring noise
    from the lens whenever the IS function was switched on. (mounted on my EOS 350D)
    Has anyone experienced something similar ?

    I wonder, if its a universal thing with that lens (because I didnt find anything
    like that in any reviews I read before ordering that)... or I just got a bad piece ?

    cheers

  2. The IS gyros make noise. Normal.
     
  3. It's the IS system in the lens. Normal.
     
  4. I love that sound!

    It's the IS running, enjoy your new lens and make a lot of fantastic shots with it :)
     
  5. Thanks for the responses guys. :)
