The noise is common in a lot of camera with auto focusing. The "motor noise" is common in many brands. For the majority of amateur video makers it is not a problem. For serious video people you can "get by" with external miss of get a dedicated video camera.

Neither the conspiracy joke nor the 'lots of cameras record motor noise on video' idea was valid here 2eyesee's camera had faulty microphone amplifiers with unacceptable hiss and random frying-bacon noises. His video clip makes that pretty obvious and the Sony guy's agreement to swap it out was the only sensible solution.
