    if any lens make a sound that normally doesn't have, one of the reasons could be that the lubricant in the lens has dried due to the dry cabinet being too dry..

    perhaps, u try increasing ur humidity to 55%?

    What is the recommended humidity? 45-55% right?

    yes, but there is the possibility of the humidity meter of the dry cab not being accurate...

    for mine dry cab, if the correct is 45%, it gives me 50%... i used a separate thing to measure the humidity..

    Well my kit len do have some noise. I suppose this is normal when auto-fous mechism is in action during half-pressed. Correct me if I'm wrong...

    I use a kit lens but the sound when it uses autofocus is almost inaudible. I suggest you bring it to Nikon for servicing since you just bought it less than 1 month.
