loose parts in a K10d?


i've had my k10d for a couple months now and ever since i bought it, it makes a noise whenever i tilt it. it sounds like there is something loose inside and when i tilt the body left and right whatever it is slides around.

any ideas what that is or if i should be concerned?

Don't be too worried, it's normal and due to the Shake Reduction design.

I agree pop4. I asked the very same thing here, and I owned my K10D for a YEAR before noticing so that's not uncommon.

Good shooting!
