Re: Zoom motor noise on the TG-5

While it is possible that your zoom motor may be failing, I'm sure that the motor noise was always there and you just might not have noticed it. This is an unavoidable consequence of a compact camera. The motor noise on my TG-5 is considerably less than on my previous TG-2. But given the state of technology, I don't see a camera manufacturer being able to eliminate it entirely.
