Sony 85mm f/1.4 Scratchy/Noisy Focusing: I Heard None with my Sample

Sony 85mm f/1.4 GM

Back on April 4th there were reports of focusing noise that sounded scratchy with the Sony 85mm f/1.4 GM.

I had completely forgotten about that blog post l so when I shot the 85/1.4 GM over the course of the past few weeks, I wasn’t thinking about it.

But here’s the thing: I’m sensitive to even small and very high pitched noises (I can hear Nikon AF-S lenses make high pitched noise), and I noticed no noise at all shooting the 85/1.4 GM, and that includes very quiet situations like the recent portrait shots. My high-frequency hearing is unimpaired (I never was a fan of loud music or concerts, my only risk was enjoying a few thousand .22 rounds as a teenager, but with ear muffs).

So maybe by the time I received the lens for review the problem had been found and fixed (I got the one from the 2nd batch that B&H received).
