I suspect it is the same as the iPhone in that, it has something to do with the auto focus in the lens itself. It is normal.

It's no the zooming. The iPhone/iPad camera zoom feature is all software. There's no such thing as a zooming "mechanism". The video stabilization is also software.

My iPad 3 doens't "rattle" when I tap it near the camera. I wouldn't go crazy if it did, though.

It may not be the zooming but it could be the auto focus that does it.
With that being said my iPad 3 doesn't make any noises at all.

Right, not zooming, auto focus. I corrected myself.
