Hi All - bought a 60d yesterday and love it - got a great deal on a 24-105 L lens too. Problem is, when i grip the camera, I can feel a little knock like something isn't quite right - if i grip the other side, this slight click repeats as i 'manipulate' the grip back and forth. Is this a general thing to expect from the build quality or should I be rushing this back?

took the battery out and it seems this it happens when the battery is in - so something somewhere must be a little flexible. Its like the pop you hear when you wiggle your jaw from side to side!

Many thanks for any help

Go back to a shop and operate that camera with your lens. Listen for the sound and take you battery as well.

Is this your first Canon SLR? I ask, because a light klick is normal for Canon SLR cameras. This comes from the landscape, portrait sensor. So your camera knows when to rotate the picture for preview.

camera is held flat and not switched on - would this still be the sensor?

Try playing with one in the shop and see if it is the same. Mine seems pretty solid... How hard are you squeezing it?

Did you buy it new? Take it back and compare it. If it was used, find another one in a shop and see if does the same thing (I doubt it will).
