Pentax-F SMC 50mm f1.7 noisy

Hi everybody.

I just bought that lens, i did some test while i was buying it , nothing found except...

I did more test (focus) at home and i found it ''noisy'' with the focus process. Example focus from 1 feet to 10 feet. Do i have to send back to get fixed (lubricate or something).

Everything else is fine...

I don't think you need to send it back. it's F series, they're like that. I've had my for a while and I don't mind the noise at all. All in all it's outstanding lens. Just enjoy it!
