I just picked up 4 G master lenses and all focus quietly except the 70-200 f/2.8. It SoundS Like a sliding or rubbing noise as it cquires a new focus point. The focusing is quick and accurate on the A9 but I am not sure if I have a bad copy or this is normal for this lens. Your comments and experience is greatly appreciated.

My GM 70-200mm makes some slight noise when focusing but in general it is quiet. The loudest out of the GM lenses I own is the 85mm. Especially in the beginning, it was noticeable but after a while, I am not paying attention to that noise anymore.

No noticeable noise with the 70-200 GM here. It's the 85mm GM that was noisy at the start as well (got a second copy and it is much quieter).

I'd go to your local camera shop and put two of the same lens next to one another and compare.
