"D5200 - problem with annoying AF sound in video mode"
Hi folks, Quick question, anyone has a good idea on how to get rid of that annoying sound when lens is adjusting focus when in movie mode? I'm using external microphone already, but it is still picking that sound from the background...lens is AF-S Nikkor 18-55 (kit lens).

Manually focus it.
That's actually a serious suggestion - either turn off AF entirely and use manual focus, or some quieter lenses you won't hear (there are a few). I use a 50 mm f/1.8D normally when I'm shooting video on my D5200 just so that I won't hear it.

Also consider using what I call the "RRRoger method". Put yourself in single, not continuous focus, and only touch up (by half-pressing the shutter release) the AF occasionally during the recording and only as needed. I use this method.
