    I was noticing how the EM10's IBIS was making a constant noise while I was doing a close-up with the 60. This was similar to the EM5 but not the older Pens. Does the E-PL7 make noise or is it just that I have the EM10 close to my head? Just curious.

    Yes it definitely makes a noise.
    Mine sounds like a tiny electric train skidding it's wheels inside a toilet roll tube on the other side of the room.

    That is an unexpectedly specific description. I'll take notice when I get home.

    Yeah I am rocking the E-PL7 and there is a similar IBIS noise. However it is really quiet and is really only noticeable if you are in a completely silent room. For me, it took me about a week with the camera until I was in a quiet enough place to hear it. Being the newbie I am to photography I freaked out for about 15 minutes thinking I had somehow broken the thing.

    In short, yes there is a sound, but barely
