Maybe the 'ultrasonic' motor isn't ultrasonic enough? If you're young you could hear towards 20.ooo Hz

I am not young and I have significant hearing loss, but Thanks anyway. I might try to post a video later.

I am still exploring which factors cause the issue. I have also found that it will not whistle if mounted to a tripod or sitting on a table. My guess is the OIS automatically disables itself when the camera is stable. I can reproduce the noise almost every time if the camera is handheld and set to mode 2 and AF-S.
