I started noticing that my D3100 makes a springy twangy noise when the shutter releases. I'm at about 18,000 actuations. The noise just makes it sound cheap and toylike and I'm concerned it may be a harbinger of future problems.

Anyone else have this issue. I did ask Nikon about it and they want me to send in my unit for them to check out.
