I just picked up a slightly used (demo?)c-5000 with everything, on ebay for $150 from a dealer....got it today....works great except....when I turn the off lever, there is a quick low pitched soft barely noticeable double beep or hum(for lack of a better description) right before the motor pulls in the lens

Is this normal for the camera?

thanks

yes I'm replying to my own posting...

I called olympus...they weren't sure so they switched me to someone who could try a 5000 and see...apparently this strange sound is normal...there's did it too!

like mine...only when it retracts to turn off...very low pitched rumble...twice

very strange
