    I just received my new M10. When I turn it on its noisy, like a fan is running, or like running water. It's annoying. Is this normal? If so, back it goes. Please help.

    It's the stabilizer on the sensor. Yes it's normal... No worse than the clunking my Canon 70-200mm 2.8 IS was.

    When I got my EM 1 I was ready to send it back due to the noise. It doesn't bother me at all now.

    After awhile you don't even notice the noise or even think about it when you turn the camera on.

    It is normal and does not bother me in the slightest. It is not loud to my ears.
