Canon SX10IS - others with mechanical noise?

Dear all,

I have just bought a Canon Powershot SX10IS and I suspect a mechanical problem.

When I turn and rotate the camera around 360 degrees, it makes a subtle "clack" noise as if there was something loose (or moving) inside the camera.

This noise is most prominent when the camera is turned off. When it is turned on, the "clack" noise when rotating the camera is somewhat lower.

Can anyone with a SX10IS please confirm if they have the same noise.

I have had both the S1, S2 and S3 and they did not have this noise.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards
