Anyone else notice this lens is a little noisy when focusing? I returned one already for this. This second one is a lot better but I still hear a squeak or squeal when the focus runs the full length.

I think that is how I remember my first 300mm. It was af not af-s. Did allot of hunting as well to focus and it wasnt quiet. But have to say it was damn sharp and price is right.............nothing $'s dont fix :). AF-S is quiet.......

Oopsssss, mine was fairly quiet but not the first I heard of it. If its new, shoot it, covered under warranty! Turn off the switch for infinity and see if that helps.....
