But why is it necessary with IS off?

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.

Weird. But why is it necessary when IS is off? None of the Pens or other Olympus DSLRs with IS do this when IS is disabled. Is it due to the new '5-axis' wunder-stabilization system?
