Yes, it does that

Here is what I notice right off the bat. My OM-D has a constant electrical hum. Kind of like a hard drive, fan, or O.I.S. stabilization system.

Yes, it does that. Doesn't matter whether you have OIS turned on or off, it always makes that low-level humming noise. But it shold stop the moment you start recording video.

One of the reasons why it's not been widely-reported, I suspect, is because you'll only really notice it in a quiet room. I didn't spot it at all when I first used the camera in Amsterdam.
