IIRC, it is the sensor cleaning system. Every time you turn on, the sensor shakes like a wet dog to clean itself.

I have my E-M5 mkII since Jan 2015, no thoughts of upgrading. Suits my need perfectly.

I have recently moved from a Sony A6000 to Fuji X-T30.
While the image quality is excellent (with their fantastic 18-55mm), there is a bit of an adjustment to make wrt. the handling.

I'm planning to sell my A6000 (with 16-50mm) now, which is in excellent condition. PM me if someone's interested.

.
I can understand the sensor cleaning system coming on line when you actually power up the system. But I am talking about the situation where you have the master switch on, and the display and EVF goes blank after a while (you can set this in the menu). Once you hit a button everything powers up.

But without the master switch having being switched on/off or a lens being swapped I don’t see why the sensor cleaning system should kick in every time the camera’s wake’s up.

You could well be correct, but I fail to see the logic in that. I have a very good manual on the Mkii, from Friedman, but it doesn’t seem to mention anything along these lines, either way. I will try my luck at some FaceBook groups, see what can be done.

Me too (but body only). Just need to get around to it, which isn't happening. And I guess the price is dropping daily

New Sony a6nnn cameras (to be officially announced within hours)

Leaked images and specs of the new Sony A6100 and A6600 and 16-5mm f/2.8 and 70-350mm lenses!

It seems like a refreshed range of a6nnn cameras for new buyers, but for me at least, my GAS is safe from irresistible upgrades.

And there he is:
Mirrorless or EVIL Cameras-img_20190904_121657.jpg

My first mirrorless
First full frame
First Sony

Cost me 48K.

Damn heavy with the kit lens.

Bye Nikon. I will have to sell my Nikon D50 and lenses to make money for a 50mm prime.

I used to think that flashes did not have compatibility issues. My Nikon flash does not fire with the Sony.

Flashes seem to come with N/S/C/etc in the model number. Once upon a time all the camera did was fire the flash: now it must talk with it!
