Well I already have a bunch of primes (24mm f2.8, 35mm f2, 50mm f1.4), but they're loud even when I'm focusing them manually (which I do most of the time) because they're all film lenses from the 90s. Whatever type of damping or lubricant that was used when the lenses were designed has since been utterly exhausted.
