    I just purchased this lens used, and it randomly started making an abnormal sound. It doesn't consistently do this, and will stop if I turn the camera off and then turn it back on. I haven't been able to find out any information about why this might be happening

    Watch the first 15 seconds of this video to see what I'm talking about:

    Thanks for any input!

    It happened to me with 50mm 1.8 OSS and it was much louder then the one you have in the video. The lens was not that much used either. Luckily it was still under warranty so I sent to Sony. They sent me back another lens, refurbished one with 3 months warranty that matched to my left warranty period. I wasn't sure what was wrong, but it was most probably the oss unit.
