12-40 Pro - noisy during AF?

Hi. Has anyone heard of a 12-40 lens making a quite audible blowing, puffy, airy noise during autofocus? The sound goes away when in MF mode, and also seems to manifest on some bodies but not others. (When other lenses are used on the body in question the noise doesn't happen).

No, used with EM-1 and MK II. I am a bit on the deaf side though!
