    New Q Question

    Yes it does. I believe it's the OIS parts in the lens that are moving around when you shake it. Don't worry & carry on.

    Annoying, but it's normal. From the OIS.

    The very first Pentax DSLR with in body stabilization always sounded like a loose screw was floating around inside the body when rotated/shaken. In those days little was known and mass panic ensued!

    I remember when i bought my OMD EM-1 and i felt that weird rattle shakiness. 'This is meant to be hardy, wtf!' then yeh i figured out or read it was the IBIS. :-)

    I hate that rattling. It is really awful. Why on earth do they have to put that OIS stuff in the camera?
    M, in that respect, is far better. Just feels steady and solid, a pure joy to use. The Q always has a touch of fragility in it, which is exacerbated by the rattling OIS.

    For the very rare occasions when the OIS is useful, it actually worsens the user experience of the camera.
