    Just seen an A7R2 in CEX for £1300 2nd hand.

    and I have a new credit card......................

    Mustn't be tempted.

    Not from there anyway.

    Why do they always leave the body cap off to expose the sensor?

    No one in their right mind's going to buy one if that's how they "look after" their stock.

    Is the AF when using a Nikon lens and an adapter as bad as people say? I've heard lots say it, but none of them have actually used it..

    Just watched this video, not checked mine yet but I don’t think yours sounds healthy at all. :(
    Will check shortly but I’m certain they don’t sound like this having owned two.

    @JJ! - did you did you say you were local to mpb? They have 4 in stock, so you might be able to go compare it against them.

    It does sound loud in your video but it's all relative. I heard it on my phone and it seemed normal but on my computer its much louder.

    I didn't have any issues with the noise. It was slightly louder than the my previous 70-200mm f4. So just thought they used similar gearing inside.

    Video probably sounds louder and remember phone is quite close to the lens.

    Checked against one in Jessops and it also made same noise. Be interested to know if yours does if doesn’t!

    Yeah I think it’s normal but people on here are now making me doubt things!

    Tried 2 different lenses on 2 bodies and all combos make the noise!!

    Just tested mine and as I suspected, mine is silent apart from when half pressing the shutter which drives the AF motors.
    Are you running the latest firmware?

    you have a special lens or every one else's lens is exactly the opposite :p

    The AF is (near) silent. But it makes noise when turned on. My 70-200 f4 did it, plenty of a-mount Sony lenses do it. I have seen it on many Sony lenses.

    As JJ! Mentioned the sound is probably amplified in the recording but it's there for sure. Even on new lenses.

    Ahhh so it's only when on and off, I thought you were racking focus and it was grinding like that. If the one in Jessops does the same thing it's probably fine and a characteristic.

    Just re-tested it.
    Yes, I can confirm the noise is there but that’s normal when you turn on and off the body.
    It sounds a lot worse on the video so I had to put my ear closer to hear it.

    It’s normal

    It’s one beast of a lens the GM.
    In fact, they all are, lol :D
    Hopefully we see the FE 24mm f1.4 GM and FE 135mm f1.8 GM announced later this month :D
    GAS is bubbling following the Fuji XT-3 announcement :)
