I have owned a 720SW for about a month. Just recently I have noticed a minor noise, as of gears working, when the camera auto-focuses.

Is this normal, and I just didn't pay attention before?

Thanks.

If your hearing is good and the ambient noise level is low almost all digital camera autofocus systems are a bit noisy with the exception of video camcorders.

Gentlemen, thanks for your replies. I rest easier knowing I don't have to return my camera for repair.

Excuse my delay in responding - I was blissfully unconnected for a few days!
