K-50 Sensor Shake

I found the old thread w/ the K-5 sensor shaking.

Im now getting the same shaking while in Live View, and the camera slightly shakes w/ all my lenses w/ regular photo taking.

Right after i click it shakes a little, making my photos blur.

Is it a humming noise or a rumbling noise? If it's the latter than your camera will need to be serviced. However, it's perfectly normal for the sensor to emit a faint sound during LV and stills shooting since the SR system is always working to keep it centered and stabilized.

It rumbling.

I've already looked servicing it. Or just totally upgrading.

It might make more sense to upgrade the camera (or just get a new one, since it's only $294 at the moment). If you wanted to upgrade I'd probably recommend the K-3 unless you wouldn't mind the K-S2's smaller grip.
