Is this normal?

    Thanks sirmy, it sounds like it is normal and I shouldn't be too bothered.

    My K10D does the same but works fine.
    I phone Pentax Customer services and they said that it was the counter weight for the shake reduction and that it was normal.
    If you power it on it clunks a little bit less.
    I also note that it only clunks when rocking it about the lense axis.
    Vormulac: Is this the same for yours?

    I don't know if I believe Pentax but it seemed logical. In fact he asked if it did it with the power on as well so it's something they are aware of. Doesn't mean it's right though!

    Hi Grognut,

    There are enough people reporting the same thing but that their cameras appear to function perfectly for me to believe that this is perfectly normal, I certainly can't say there appears to be anything wrong with the way my K10D is working. If it packs up it'll be something I mention when I send it back, but to be honest I'm not overly worried now.
