I checked and when the OM-D is in video mode, whatever it is that is making the humming noise shuts down, so no need to be concerned about that.

Check again, it's still there. If we are already making a big deal about a bit of noise the IS puts out I want to make sure it's correct. Go to a quiet room, put your ear up against the LCD and start recording a video. It stops for half a second, then comes back as very quiet lower tone sound.

Really the only reason I mention is that is the people are using it as an argument it's not the IS system. Either video requires a different type of IS, or Oly is being cautious and using a more quiet mode.
