Is there a microphone that mounts on the DSLR hot shoe and doesn't pick up lens noise?

A review of Nikon's microphone said it could still hear the lens.

I don't intend to shoot professional grade video. A separate microphone stand is too much equipment and effort. I want a simple solution that's better than the in-camera microphone, which hears every AF and VR movement. I can turn off VR without much ill effect, but the camera's autofocus is better than my manual focus.
