I both today a pentax k-r is my first slr camera ...i mounted the lenses,the card,the battery but as i was doing this i noticed a sound ,something was moving inside the camera body ...after experimenting and trying to figure out what the noise was i noticed that when i shake the camera left right left right something seems to move left right as well inside the camera ,i don't think it's the mirror ,it doesn't seem to move when i shake the camera ,i think is something behind it that is not properly fixed ... is this normal ?

Yes, perfectly normal. All Pentax cameras with Shake Reduction do this. Just ignore it.
It is as designed.

Yeah, it was.
The "clunk" question comes up very frequently.
Stick around, you'll see.

arsenal_emyrates, I might suggest that on your next post, perhaps put a short description of what you are asking about in the "Topic" line, such as "K-r has clunk sound when jiggled" so it is easier for other users to know what sort of issue you are having. Helps you get a faster response I believe.

...or better yet, post in appropriate section, such as "troubleshooting".
