K-m (K2000) strange shutter sound

I recently bought a Pentax K-m (K2000) and I have noticed that on long exposures (+1 sec) I can hear a fizzing/buzzing noise coming from the shutter/sensor area. Has anyone else noticed this? It seems to stop if I tip the camera up.

I have k200d with 14000 actuations already made and there is the same sound on long exposures. Seems to be fine, don't worry

That's the SR system trying to keep the sensor in place. My K200D does the same, my *istDS (which lacked SR) did not.
