Check wether the autofocus mode is set to AF-S or AF-F. If set to AF-F (full time AF), the camera focuses and refocusses at all times, even when the shutter release button is not pressed. The movement of the lenses generate a faint noise, also in my P7100. Once you press the shutter release button half down, the actual focus is locked and the noise is gone.

Thanks for that. Focus mode seems to make no difference; I'm inclined to think it's more to do with the VR system. Although I can't understand why the whirring is present when VR is turned off!
