Yup, it's normal- see the stickies on "cluck noise" located throughout the forum.

Welcome to the forums maki510. The Q is a fun camera to own and use. Hope to see some of your pictures.

I am used to Pentax cameras making the clunk sound but was caught off guard recently by my 6 month old Q. It seemed to be emitting a high pitched "mosquito" sound. Thought it was broken. Finally figured out the shake reduction had been set to work all the time. No idea how it got changed.


thanks
