K20D and DA*16-50mm in Liveview

I seem to be having an issue with liveview and my 16-50. I am shooting without shake reduction and with the lens and camera in manual mode. Immediately upon turning on liveview the camera shakes and the image displayed is also shaking. Not a little bit either. It feels as if the camera is constantly trying to obtain a focus. The image displayed moves around and shakes at the same rate/time as the vibration.

Is there something I am missing with the setup? I have also put all my other (Non DA) lenses on and I have no issue. I have cleaned all the contacts on the lens and camera as well.

Any thoughts?

Sounds like a lens problem since your other lenses work.

By manual mode above you mean manual focus, right? Although it shouldn't matter, try to set camera as well as lens to manual focus.
