Does your K-7 rattle?

For all the fellow k-7 owners I have a question for you.

When you flip your K-7 up side down, does it make a rattling noise? Mine makes what sounds like a dust remover kind of noise, along with a rattle. It sounds like a sensor moving around in slot. Is this normal? Do you have the same experience?

Yes, it's the SR mechanism.

SR noise

I believe that all the SR-equipped Pentax dslrs do this.

That's probably uber-secret in-lens shake reduction of Pentax. As we see now, Pentax was ahead of the game even back in the manual focus film days
