K-01 camera sound??????

I just noticed some noises coming from my new K-01. The first is a rattling noise when the camera is being moved which I will assume is the sr working but the second is kind of a static sound I can hear when I hold the camera up to my ear. As long as the lcd is on it makes this noise. Is this normal?...Thanks Bob

I'm pretty sure its just the SR, shake reduction. The other thing might be the camera opening/closing lens aperture according to the light (even when not triggering the shutter). I don't know exactly what noises your camera is making, though.

It sounds almost like a small motor running and it can't be the aperture because I almost always shoot in aperture priority where the aperture stays fixed.

The aperture does not stay fixed when the camera is idling in live view. If there is too much light, the camera will protect the sensor by closing aperture. But this sounds like a click, not like a constant whirring. Its probably the SR, and I don't think you can completely turn it off.

If the SR is is turned off it is still energized, it has to hold the sensor still, so you'll hear some noise from that even with the SR off.
