question... does anyone else's FZ make any noise when autofocussing? mine seems to make a little growling noice, very briefly, when i press the shutter button halfway to autofocus, and again when i release it. it doesn't do it all the time. it also seems to make this sound when i'm switching modes, from, say, "P" to "A", and also when i turn the camera on and off. is this something about to crap out, or is it something they all do, and i just never noticed it before? everything seems to work just peachy, so if it IS abnormal, it isn't affecting anything functionally...

This is normal. The mechanical shutter makes some noise. (And the moving lenses too...). When you switch fromF2.8 to F8 it makes some noise too.

Mine seems to make the noise even when continuous auto-focus is off. Whenever it's adusting the exposure, you can hear it churning.
