I wanted to ask a quick one on a couple of noises I hadn't noticed before. The first one I think I figured out. Every time I half pressed the shutter release the lens would make an odd clunk, and then again when it was released. I don't mean the real quiet sound of the focus motor, but an initial clunk when it engaged, and then when released. I put the lens on my D40 and it still did it. I then thought maybe it was the VR. When I turned it off by the switch on the barrel the clunking stopped. When I turned it back on it was still gone. Put it back and D5000 and problem seems gone.

The second noise is from the the D5000 itself. When the shutter is released there is the typical noises of the mirror and other parts that do there thing in there. However, at the same time, there is a odd twang sound. Not sure how to describe it other than it twangs like a spring rub, or some part maybe not quiet damped right. It's not terribly loud, but didn't notice it before, and my D40 doesn't do it. Although I have had a couple of older film SLR's make similar noise.

Question is, does these noises sound normal (no pun intended)? the D5000 18-55mm kit was Nikon refurb from Adorama, so I thought I would ask before the 90 day warranty went up incase.
