Try turning off sounds or blocking the holes of the speakers. Also try turning off the display and EVF or try different brightness settings.

OK, I don't have the camera at the moment, but based on what I can remember trying and testing:

1) It doesn't come from the speaker

2) It doesn't matter whether you're using the LCD, built-in EVF, or indeed the VF-2. You obviously can't have the camera turned on without one of the finders being active.

Most importantly - it really doesn't matter, from what I can tell. It's not loud, and most of the time you'll never notice it. It seems to be about as much of a problem as Panasonic's rattling OIS units - first time you notice it you'll be understandably concerned, but it really doesn't seem to be a problem in real-world use.
