Also, one thing I'd be interested to know is, has the ticking sound in video mode been fixed on the TG-2?

I've done a couple videos with the TG-2 and don't have any noticeable ticking.  One thing I DO notice is the sound of the zoom motor if you use it while recording a video.  But, no ticking while recording without zoom.  As I understand it, the problem seemed to be caused by the AF motor as it focused and re-focused on objects while recording.  I panned the camera during my recordings to be sure the AF motor had to focus on many different objects at a variety of distances.  My camera recording volume is set to 'normal'.  I didn't own the TG-1 long enough to see if my copy had the ticking or not, but so far, my TG-2 exhibits no tick.
