Olympus E-M1 II 12-100 4K loud

Hi, my first post, so please forgive me if I'm bugging you. but I can't find anything on the web about this. If you have an Olympus E-M1 II and a 12-100 f/4 PRO lens could you please do me this favour:

Set the mode dial to "Movie".

Set focus to C-AF.

Set to either 4K or C4K (either will do).

No need to take a video as the C-AF will kick in anyway.

Wave the camera about a bit so that C-AF has something to do.

In a quiet environment, do you hear a distinct constant clunking noise that "sounds louder than you would have expected it to be"?

And if so, then confirm that in HD or FHD that there is no noise worth even mentioning?

Nothing will make it go away in 4K or C4K, no matter what else I change ...e g IS off/on, etc. Body and lens are on latest firmware.

I have no other lenses to try with.

Any ideas please?

(and yes I know that most people might not use C-AF for video, but I, unskilled as I am, do use it, and the noise is very audible in C4K which I prefer)

Thanks for your time,
