Is it normal for the Panasonic 25mm 1.4 to make noise when focussing?

I don't mean the rattlesnake noise, but just a vibration/noise from the AF motor? I just bought the lens yesterday and was surprised that it made any noise as had read it was meant to be silent?

For some reason in video mode it's silent but in photo mode it makes noise, and a vibration can be felt through the camera. It's not as loud as the 20mm 1.7 but definitely a lot louder than the 45mm 1.8 from Olympus. I'm wondering if it's worth returning for another copy, or will I just find it's a 'feature' of this lens? I'm using it on a GX1.

Thanks.
