    Hi,

    last weekend I bought the E-M1 and am very happy with it. Nevertheless sometimes I have noticed a strange hissing noise. You can hear a sample when you click on the link below. The noise appears randomly and disappears after I switched the camera off and back on. It appears with no lens attached and continues even after ejecting the SD card. I owned an E-M5 and know that this noise is not the IBIS. I know how that sounds like and the camera produces the IBIS noise as usual when the shutter is half pressed.

    Has anyone else noticed this noise or might know whether it's normal or indicates a faulty unit?
