Strange Noise

I am new to this forum and have a question. I picked up a K100d and so far it seems like a great camera. The one thing I have noticed is a wierd noise when the mirror is up something like a high pitch buzzing sound. It only happpens if I have a longer shutter speed say 1 sec and beyond. Although it will not do it in BULB mode.
Any input would be great.

Fear not. The K100D does, indeed, occasionally make strange sounds. They are probably only audible to the user and seem to signify nothing.

Same here. It's a normal noise. Some hear it, some don't.
