FA 50 f1.4 sound?

Hello,

I just picked up a new FA 50 f1.4 for my K10d. It works great, but there is a strange sound from the lens when I rotate the camera back and forth. It almost sounds like something is loose and bouncing around. The lens does not make this sound when I remove it from the camera and rotate it by hand. My other lens (DA 16-45) makes no such sound on the camera.

From what I can tell, the lens is functioning fine. Does anyone know what this might be?

Jim

I have some noise with some of my lenses on my K100D too. Does it sound like metal click?
If so, I was told it could be the little liver sticking out of the lens, that handles the apperture...

Yes, that's exactly what it sounds like, a metalic click.

Thanks for the reply.

Thanks for the reply.
I just checked with my M 100/4 macro lens, and the aperture ring will move a tiny bit, and click, even when off the camera.
