I have just noticed that my 35mm f2 makes a strange sound when focusing manually. I never noticed it before. I recorded the sound (I hope I’m allowed to post the link). The sound on the recording is a bit louder than it is in real.
Can anybody confirm that this is normal? Or is something broken? I already checked if my firmware is the newest one.
I’m using a X-T10.
My 35mm f2 makes exactly the same noise when focusing manually on a X-T2.
My lens works otherwise perfectly, so I assume it is a normal sound although I agree that it sounds strange.
I think it has something to do with it being a focus by wire system or whatever they call it. It’s just an electronic ring that triggers a motor to move the focusing elements. So it’s normal.
