I just got a Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 APO DG MACRO lens. The sound of the motor is rather loud when focusing. Is this normal?

Hi CasonLyn, do you mean its normal for my lens to be that noisy? Cos my kit lens is virtually noiseless.

Yes, the Sigma 70-300 is pretty noisy... The Sigma HSM is quieter though.
Tamron makes pretty noisy lens too...
