IBIS "sound"

as i have 2 E-PL3 i could compare both side-by-side. on thing that i noticed immediately was how different their shutter sounded. i mean i am a musician and i am quite sensitive to sound.

when i got the first one i even thought it was defective, because the IBIS did a strange noise at longer shutter speeds.

i recorded 2 samples with the iphone from both. it was at 1/2 sec shutter speed and the same kit-lens mounted on both. as you can hear the IBIS sounds pretty scratchy on one of them. this is also the one that sounds more hollow to me, still both seem to produce the same amount of blurriness.
