Jumping to conclusions?

As is well known, first supplies of new and complex equipment always seem to need a sjhakedown cruse to get the kinks out, after which the manufacturer starts issuing fixes and spinning for damage control. We all should thank you for pioneering this camera. Sorry to hear something might be amiss.

I've got no idea what might be wrong. I'd just hum along with it in a duet.

That would be assuming something is indeed wrong. It could well be a normal and harmless phenomenon. Just like the rattlesnake with some bright Panasonic lenses on an Olympus body.

I guess some people are more sensitive to that kind of noise. When I first used the 20mm pancake on the E-PL1 I did notice the rattlesnake, but it never occurred to me that it could be broken. Turned out it wasn't and it never bothers me at all.
