This lens meets the standards for our company lenses. However, the drive sound may be heard loudly, depending on the combination of the zoom speed settings on the camera and on the lens.

The drive sound can be reduced by slowing the zoom speed.
If your camera is equipped with a shoe for accessories, you can reduce the drive sound considerably by using an external microphone.

Test recording is recommended before actual use.
