Thank you for the answers. One more question. When I start up the camera without lens, there is no sound. When I start up with the 12-60 there is a noise from the lens. Is it normal? Please check the video.

It's common to hear a faint mechanical sound when you turn it on, as the camera engages the lens.  But I've never heard that particular sound (is that a beep?) when turning on my G9.  I typically have the focus beeps muted, so I turned them back on just to make sure, and I still didn't hear this sound.  Do you have any other lenses you can try to see if it's just that lens?
