Blunt noise from camera

I hear a strange, kinda blunt noise when i tilt my k100d super from side to side.. it gets somewhat different and louder when the camera is turned off..

Is that from the sensor (maybe its a bit loose to manipulate during SR) ? Do you guys experience the same noise?

My guess is that's the Shake reduction mechanism

It is the mechanical parts of the Shake Reduction system.

Aye it's a sort of clunky noise, I agree it does sound expensively worrying, but all is well, as the others have said it's the SR mechanism.
