S100 video noise from AF

I thought I'd read a post somewhere about S100 AF noise during video, but now can't seem to find it. I have a new S100 and am trying to determine if it is defective, or if it works like all others. When shooting video with AF on in a quiet room, there is a distinct tapping or clicking noise when camera auto focuses. Shooting the same way with MF is totally silent. I've seen some other youtube postings, but not sure whether these are defective cameras or this is just the way the S100 video performs. I can live with it if its a design constraint, but if defective would prefer to exchange.

Can someone with an S100 kindly give me some feedback - does yours make this clicking/tapping AF sound when recording in a quiet room?
Thanks!
