If you shake your RX100 (lightly), does it rattle?

Mine does, and I'm trying to figure out if this is normal.

I had never shaken it before, but just did after reading your post, and I do hear a light rattle.

It's probably caused by the orientation sensor.

Yes mine does and I suspect it's the movable lens element for image stabilization.

I forgot about that. You are probably right.

Don't worry, it's normal

Take a look at this thread: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1009&message=42355418

It is probably the same to what you experience. It is the whole lense unit that can move to allow the stabilization system to work.

Re: Don't worry, it's normal

I guess it is the same thing I asked about here (the last of my questions): http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1009&thread=42236702

At first I thought something was wrong (and I still do sometimes, because it's annoying), but the camera works great so... if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Anyway, even with the explanations I've read so far, I still believe the barrel should be tighter, not absolutely tight since it must have some play to avoid unnecessary friction, but neither so loose. I would like the barrel play to be dampened somehow as other compacts seem to do (then again, they don't have such a big lens, that might be the reason).
