Question For Canon 300/4 Is Users

I just bought a used Canon 300mm F/4 lens. I noticed that the IS mechanism is much noisier than that of the 100-400mm, is this normal? Or is my lens defective? IS works fine, it's just noisy.

Thanks!

Hisham.

Yeah I noticed that too campared to my 70-200 L'IS, I think it's normal. It's a cracking lens, bloody sharp.

Hi Hisham,

My 300's IS is bit on the clunky side too, but it works a treat.

Regards
Martin

I got to use a 300 f/4 not too long ago and I noticed the rather noisy IS. It took some amazing shots though.
