I've noticed that when I shake my e-m10 there seems to be a something loose inside the evf or inside the camera.everything seems to be functioning good. Is this normal? can anyone shake theirs to see if there's is the same.

Hello.
I think is the sensor. When the camera is turned OFF, it is "loose", but when we turn it ON it becomes "suspended" by the magnetic field of the image stabilisation system. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Thank you for your replies. I was just getting a bit worried. It's just bothersome because I assume something is loose and the noise sounds internal above the screen or inside the evf

Same with mine
This is definitely the IBIS mechanism
If you shake the camera (gently) whilst switched off you can hear the rattle
If you switch the camera on the rattle disappears
I was a little concerned when I first got mine but not so after I realised what it was
This is because the sensor is free floating whilst switched off and 'engaged' by the IBIS when switched on which holds it 'still'
I think the movement is greater or at least more noticeable on the 10 compared to the 5 due to the IBIS being 3 AXIS rather than 5 and of slightly different design
Regards
Rob
