Canon may call it money, but I call it noise.
Sound level wise I would describe it as pianissimo. In other words the IS unit is so quiet you can only hear it if you hold the rig next to or against your head while in a quiet environment. Your subject will not hear a thing. Moreover, you probably won't hear anything when using it on the street or in trade winds.
"pianissimo"? Wow, it's been too long since I've played - would have never pulled this word out of my hat.
Your description matches my other two lenses, but not this one. It is much more (in the words of jhg photo) audible. I was in a quite room, but again, much more audible.
The sound doesn't bother me, if it's to be expected. Just caught me off guard a little.
