Pana 25mm/f1.4 - clicking noise normal?

There is a definite clicking or ticking noise that I am frequently hearing when using the 25mm/f1.4 on the E-P3. I did a search but could not find any posts/threads relating to this on this specific lens. I did find some similar "noise" concerns with other lenses/cameras when using the kit lens, mostly with video.

Can anyone give me more information? I have not been able to narrow it down to specific situations, except it seems to happen either when or immediately after I've taken the shot.

If it is normal, I think I would have found others speaking about it as I've never heard this noise before with any of my lenses and/or cameras. I just want to be sure the lens is not defective.

Thanks.
