I have just read all of the comments. Does everyone realize that just about any camera with an on-board mic will pick up any camera noise from either the camera or your hands? I do understand the constant noise that may or may not be present on other cameras, however. DSLR - you have to be very careful when you zoom, or when you use auto-focus because of the close proximity to the on-board mic picking up noise.

I had no problem with noise when using a FZ200...either with in-mic or short external mic. FZ1000 is quite different due to OIS system. Ironic that such a sophisticated camera would lack something as simple as a sound shield around the motor mechanism. My only remedy is to purchase an extended external mic if I want to record in a quiet environment. And that basically sucks!
