Strange noise from Canon G5

    Got my G5 yesterday and wanted to report a strange noise when the lens
    is moving. Going from either tele or wide or vice versa, it sounds as
    if there is some thin paper crinkling inside. Is this some sort of
    protective lining?

    I noticed this immediately as my G3 did not do this.

    I am returning the camera tonight to determine if other units exhibit
    this same phenomenom. I would hate to have to return it as everything
    else seems fine and pictures are great. I will report back over the
    weekend.

    Since they are both the same camera other than for case color and CCD, it
    should sound and behave just like your G3 did.

    Thanks.
