In both cases it will be the sound of the IS, surely? If you switch the IS "off" all you are telling it to do is stop reacting to the gyros. It still has to hold the sensor (OM-D) or lens element (L1) steady - I think. I have an L1 and never noticed the sound. Also an E-PM1 and 25 f1.4, and I don't notice that sound either. So I doubt the OM-D will bother me.

I'm bemused by all this fuss. The GH2 makes a noise with OIS lenses such as the 45-200 whether the OIS is on or off and I've never thought this is something to get concerned about -you can hardly hear it anyway. I suspect the above is the correct explanation, not that I have any technical knowledge about such things. If there is some serious issue, I'm quite sure it will be picked up fairly quickly.
