    hi everyone, i took my om-d em10 out today for the first time and i noticed something strange. if i shake the camera, it makes a noise like something mechanical is loose inside. it doesnt do that when the camera is on. i gudess it's the image stabilization system, but neither my epm1 nor my em5 did such a noise.
    could someone please shake his/her em10 (gently!) and report back here?
    ikm starting to suspect that the first batch of em10 had quality issues (please see other posts about lenses not fitting well in the bayonnet mount) and this is why we're seeing the low stocks now. or may be i'm being paranoid :)

    First of all, it's not a rattle, so don't shake it & yes you're being a little paranoid. :rolleyes:  :wink:

    It is the movement of the sensor & it is normal, so relax & enjoy.

    Really, these cameras should come with a warning. Its so freaky when that happens.
