K-7: Humming in live view/movie mode?


just picked up a K-7 the other day. first time ever experiences with live view and movie mode in a DSLR here . my K-7 produces a (not too audible) humming noise when live view is on and in movie mode (with audio recording turned off), when held close to the face, I can hear a slightly different sound like a interference coming from a computer soundcard.
just wondering if these sounds are perfectly normal?

btw, all things considered this camera so far is a wonderful upgrade to my *istDL, which I traded in for it.
