I think it's the magnetic IS

Just as a matter of interest, any ideas on what it is?

I only can think that it can be the IS system, something with the electrical circuit that passes the noise to the speaker as already have been mentioned, can not think on other thing, but let's see what Olympus say to Andy

Another update. I took the lens off and turned on the camera. You can clearly see the sensor rise a millimeter or two. It seems like the IS system is an integral part of the camera. Even when it's off it still has to be one to move the sensor to the correct location, it just doesn't correct for shake. I haven't had time to look at the movie mode.

I remember someone a while back didn't want a floating sensor and wanted it unmoving. This probably isn't the camera for you.
