It is normal. I think the camera is keeping a certain aperture to maintain the brightness of the display and as you point it at different scene brightness, it changes the aperture accordingly.

Yeah, it's this. My Ricoh P&S does this, as well as my K5 when in live view.
If you got a lens with a big enough front opening you can even see this if you look at the front of the camera, then point it right to a lamp and move back etc.
