E-PL5: mechanical grinding/rattling noises at slow shutter speeds
Jan 27, 2013

On my new E-PL5, I just noticed at shutter speeds between about 1/6" and 2" when IBIS is on, there is a very noticeable mechanical rattling/grinding noise while the camera is exposing. Happens whether a lens is mounted or not. I uploaded a video here:

The only other mention I've found is here with the E-PM1:

Can anyone confirm whether their PEN cameras are making this noise or not? Thanks
