Newbie and just a question

Hi to all Pentax friends. I write this using my poor English, cause I've seen that the translations in Italian are... well ...may I say a mess?
I'm new to the forum but I shall say that I'm taking pictures with Pentax since more then 30years now. My first buy, having had on loan for a while an old Spotmatic, was a K1000, plus a 28mm and a 135mm Takumar.
Now recently I turned into digital (films are disappearing and digital is now completely superior). I got an X90, particularly appealed by its wonderful zoom.
The machine is working well, although I've used till now about 10% of its features.
The only problem is that when I shake it , I can here and feel something loose inside. I read in the forum that this is typical of the shake suppressor featured cameras, but the thread was related to the DSLR Pentax 7.
May someone owing the X90 let me know if this isnormal?
BTW I’ve bought the X90 fully regularly via internet ( and although in the warranty and assistance booklets the FOWA is indicated as the place to refer to in Italy, they denied any assistance to Pentax not passed by them and thus not having they stamp. No comment, just another Italian job.
I will appreciate any answer and again I beg you pardon for my poor English.

Welcome! I do not own a X90 but I looked it up and it has in-body shake reduction and that should be the same system in the Kx and K7 and that is what is making the sound. The image sensor "floats" around so that movement from you does not transfer to the camera. What you hear is the sensor moving around.
