    I can hear this lens focusing. Like a moter sound. It's louder at f22 than at 1.8 but still dose it when you half press. Worse on continues focus. Anyone else hear this and is it normal?

    My SEL24 is silent. I haven't really tried to listen in a truly quiet room though.

    Do not have any noticeable sound from my SEL24 either.

    The Zeiss Sonnar makes some noise while focusing. This is normal behavior of the focusing motor. While you should be able to clearly hear it, it shouldn't be loud either.

    Thanks for the help. I returned the lens and got another. The new one is silent. Thanks
