K7 noise when camera rotated

I'm new to posting on this forum...or any forum for that matter...so hope I'm in the right spot!
I live in an area that does not have retail support for Pentax and I am the only person I know who doesn't own a 'massive' Nikon or Canon DSLR. (I have been a die hard Pentax fan since I got my first SLR camera over 30 years ago.)
Before I panic and call Pentax support, I thought someone 'out there' might be able to provide me with some reassurance, or at the very least a possible explanation.

I have a K7 DSLR. Perhaps until now, I haven't been paying attention (!), but I am hearing a noise as though something inside the camera body is 'shifting' when I rotate the camera from landscape to portrait orientation and vice versa. The camera appears to be working fine. Should I be concerned? Is it safe to keep using the camera?

It is safe to use the camera. You hear the Shake Reduction (SR).

This is normal.

Enjoy the K-7. It is a great camera with few quirks...
