Is This Normal?

I happen to shake the my K-5 camera body with no lens and I can hear something is moving inside. Is this normal or something may become lose?

Normal -- the stabilization allows the sensor to move so it clunks around a bit when it is turned off. Easy on the shaking though...

Greetings fellow Portlander! We have all wondered this with our first stabilized Pentax dSLR; I know I sure did. It's probably the most-asked first question - welcome to SR!

Does it say anything in the manual about that being normal? People must ask Pentax service all the time when they buy their cameras...

Of course it does (page 17).
If most people would bother to read the K-5 Operating Manual thoroughly or do a simple search on this forum, we wouldn't have so many of such threads.
