I barely hear anything when the D90 does a self cleaning. The sound the D300 makes is much more noticeable. Can anybody who has heard both confirm that their D90 self cleaning sound is a lot quieter than the D300? I just want to make sure it is working as it should.

I found this on the Nikon tech support website:
Sensor cleaning takes approximately 3 seconds to complete. During this time a high pitched noise may be heard. This nearly inaudible squeal is just slightly louder with the D300 than the D700, and this may be due to the different sensors used in these cameras. The D90 noise is slight as well, but is audible if you listen closely enough.
