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.

Unlike Andy,

Chris, Kiri, Charles and possibly some more people have the Camera and could put this to rest or find out if there is an issue here.

Just record in all quietness a few minutes of video, transfer to a computer and listen back for any noise.

No noise, no problem.
If noise, Olympus got a problem.

For me, noise or not, no problem.
I'm not buying the camera for Video use..
