    Three months ago, I bought a 18-125mm stabilized Sigma lens for my EOS350D.
    It drains the batteries even when it's switched Off, the cam remaining On.
    Whatever the position of the lens' switch is, when I put my ear against the
    lens I can notice a very weak ratteling sound.
    The Only difference between the two positions is that when it's on, there's
    some inertia in the target tracking and it's jumpy, proving that the
    stabilizer is acting correctly.
    The questions are:
    what is in movement inside ? A small motor ?
    and shouldn't this device in action be off when the lens' switch is Off as
    well ?
    Does anybody experience this kind of issue before ?
