Weird Vibration and Noise while Switching Off the camera.

Hi All ,

Whenever I switch off the camera off , i tend to get a vibration and noise (something like that) . Is this normal or am I doing something wrong. ?

Is it just a half-second TRRRT sound? You probably have dust removal turned to automatic on shut down. You can change it to off or automatic on start up, or leave it as it is.
Feature, not a bug. Nothing to worry about.

That is probably just the dust removal system. My K-30 did that when I got it except it did it when I turned it on so I set it to do it when I turned it off because it seemed to make start up time less.
