X-T4 High Pitch IBIS Noise Normal?

Hi All,

I just got my X-T4 last week. I hear a high pitch noise coming from the rear of the camera body, almost sounds like a cricket, mouse or someone scratching vinyl records. It's about a 15,000-17,000 hz tone noise.  If I am in a noisy room I can't hear it, just in a quiet room.

Can anyone with good ears confirm if the noise is normal to these cameras? This is not the IBIS humming that is normally heard on the body, it's on top of that and only happens when the camera is tilted up or down. The noise stops in picture review mode and the frequency of the sound gets lower when put into video mode. It can be picked up by the camera mic in a very quiet room. I am using prime 56 and 90mm lenses, so its not a lens issue. Happens whether IS is ON or OFF.

I want to make sure I didn't get a defective camera.

I have a video I took of the noise here:

Thank you guys!
