60mm f2.4 AF noise?

Recommended Posts

Just bought a used 60mm and have noticed the AF is loud there's a whine when focussing, just wondering if that's normal for this lens?

 

Cheers.

The AF motors in the early lenses of which this is one, were noisy compared to later lenses. Mine makes a sound (wouldn't call it noise).

Sharp with a lovely bokeh. Great for portraits or close-ups and for picking out architectural detail. Also good for candid street portraiture and general photography.

You have one of the best lenses in the Fuji line up - enjoy it.

SnapPuppy, 

My 60 (on both an XT10 and XT2) is somewhat noisy, especially when macro focusing. The most interesting sound is after struggling to focus and it stops, it makes a sound like its giving up :)

Enjoy the lens though, its a slower focusing lens but the pictures it takes are excellent. Along with the 35 1.4, they are two of my favorite lenses.

Ditto

Mine sounds like a model car winding up and down. Glad to see its the norm. My Nikon one is nice and quiet though!
