A malfunction, or not?

Often, when I first turn on the "M", the green "on" light blinks rapidly for a second or two before the LCD screen lights up.  Is this normal?  After this start up, everything works as expected.  I have a Canon SX50 that does about the same thing only with a few second clicking sound before it's ready to go.  I've not experienced this with any other cameras before.  Unless this is a sign of some more serious problem down the road, I doubt I'd bother sending it in to be remedied.
