Re: My OMD EM-5 is noisy! (part 2)

Just received my Olympus E-M5. When I first turned it on, I did not notice any humming noise. But after unsuccessfully attempting to update the lens firmware (seems neither of my computers can find my camera), I disconnected the camera from the computer and turned it back on and "voila" I hear a loud humming noise. (P.S.: it is not the IBIS!) I have owned a lot of cameras over the years including several olympus and panasonic MFT cameras, and have never had to deal with any humming noise, objectionable or otherwise. It is absolutely inexcusable that Olympus would release a camera which (according to the forums) is such a wide spread issue. And even more disconcerting are the people who get fighting mad if someone even suggests there is a problem here!!!
