    Hi, Just picked up a GX85 last evening. I quickly noticed there is a wobble feeling in the camera. I first noticed it carrying the camera in one hand while walking. I tried it without a lens attached and it still has a wobble to it. I think it wobbles less when powered on.

    I've not noticed this on any other camera before and it's quite disconcerting . Is this normal for this camera?

    Congrats, you now have a camera with multi-axis IBIS. The sensor can move around, but is actively controlled when powered up so doesn't move as much. It's something that you have in common with all OM-D and late PEN owners.

    Quite unsetteling at first. I thought my Pentax K7 was broken when it came from the shop, with its "Cachunk" noises and something definitively moving around in there.

    You are GTG. :)

    Thanks very much. Admittedly, this is my first ILC with IBIS. it's not something I noticed in the store, but I wasn't walking around (or away) with the demo camera. :)
