Anyone held a EM1 and shook it?

Just got my new EM1  yesterday.  Took quick shots of our messy room with the 12-40 zoom, and  2 m-mount lenses.  Nice,  especially with the 90mm Leica.  With the IBIS, I finally can get sharp shots without motion blur at slow shutter speeds.

One  thing I noticed when I had the thought that  "this is built like a rock!".  I shook the EM1 and heard a rattling sound.  I pressed down on all the doors, etc that could be loose but still the  rattle.  Then I yelled in my head "STOP!"  The rattling sound could be the IBIS!

The camera seems to be working fine so far so nothing seems to be broken. So have anyone else heard this rattling sound and do you think it is the IBIS?
