K-m mishap

Hi there, just recently new to the whole photography thing. I drive a truck for a living. I was moving my personal effects out of the truck when my Pentax km took a tumble out of the truck from the passenger seat down to the pavement. Luckily I had it in a padded pentax case designed for that camera. I checked the camera out with no apparent damage and everything seems to work fine except for a slight rattle inside of the camera. Just wondering if the rattling in the camera is normal.....thx

The rattle could be the shake reduction mechanism. The sensor assembly rattles on all Pentax'es with SR when turned off.
