Hi

I just received a refurbished Z6, quite exciting at first. But this noise is quite annoying to a level that I am wondering if mine is defective.

When turning on/off the camera and going in/out of reviewing photos, there is a clunk or clicking sound. If I turn off the IBIS then it is quiet. The loudness is just slightly lower than the mechanical shutter sound.

Is this normal?

I could not find much information on line. I don’t remember hearing this noise when trying a Z6 in storeI a few weeks ago.

I think what you’re hearing is normal. It’s the sound of the sensor assembly being locked in place when not in use.

To me, the sound resembles a tiny garage door opening then a brief metallic click.
