K10 button.....loose?

I've had my k10 for a few months now, and I'm just noticing that the OK button and the 4-way controller button (that surrounds the OK button) on the back of the camera seems a bit loose. It functions properly, there just seems to be an awful lot of "play." How is yours? There's a good chance mine has been this way since I got it, and it's supposed to be like this, but I'm just noticing it now

Sorry 0 that was a little facetious and jeuvanile - yes you are correct - there is a lot of play. It is perfectly OK.

if you rub a finger over mine gently it moves around a bit as well

which I suppose makes it a bit loose.

mine moves around freely too I wouldn't worry bear in mind that it is sitting on a rubber pad and as the K10D has water seals it may be larger than most so adds a bit of play

Hi- I've just taken delivery of a GX10 and guess what? I have the same 'problem'. So I called Samsung, and they say it's normal (but then they would, wouldn't they ? )

Jeff, I just took a K10D out of the box this morning and I notice the same thing you are talking about. I would say it's normal.
