I've given up worrying about it, it seems to make no difference to the camera or the pics, so forget about it and enjoy your 8800, i do.

As an 8800 owner for the past week, I've also heard this same "whirring" noise. My field of work is switching power supplies; and, the noise ("hash") sounds much like a very small high-frequency switcher - note that it shuts down when the camera goes into "sleep" mode.

This switcher is probably used to generate voltages above the battery supply in order to power the LCD and TFT displays. My Minolta D7 has the same sort of "noise". ...from my view ... not to worry...

I just got my 8800 today and the first thing I noticed after charging the battery and turning it on was a grinding/whirring sound when I half press the button to take a picture. I don't hear any fan type noise with it on or off and just doing nothing. I only have the unsettling noise when it is focusing. Is this normal? I have tried it with VR on and off and it's the same?
