Strange sound after exposure measurements

Hello everyone,

each time I press the shutter half way a quiet, but audible buzzing sound arises from my K-S2-body. It sounded like the shake-reduction, but disabling it does not end the sound.
This occurs with different lenses, so it's not a lens-specific issue.
The sound continues after the shutter is released again and eventually stops after ~5 seconds.

Any thoughts on this? Is it normal or should I contact the reseller?


PS.: I wasn't perfectly sure, whether this should go to the troubleshooting- or K-S1/2-forum, so feel free to move the thread around.
