As did my G2....I noticed it one day when I was waiting for someone while sitting in a quiet car. If you turn off the OIS on the Panasonics it goes away.

As others have said, I am sure it is part of the IS system which keeps the sensor in the right place when the camera is on, even if the actual IS functions are shut off.

In actual use, do I notice it on the GH2 when I am using it? No. Even if the OMD's IS is louder than the GH2's, you will still need to have very low ambient noise to hear it above everything else going on.

I don't think this should lend itself to everyone jumping up and down in a panic......
