Anybody else gotten an R5 yet and noticed a very noticeable clunk or rattle when the camera is moved or shaken when the camera is off? It's much less noticeable when the camera is on. I assume it's related to the IBIS. But wow, that doesn't inspire a lot of confidence. Sounds like something is just loose inside the camera. Does not seem to be any different if I turn off the IBIS and then turn off the camera.

Otherwise very happy with the camera after just playing around with it for a few minutes. But that rattle will take some getting used to. :oops:

I sounds both normal and quite unsettling for sure... I was going to suggest turning IBIS off first, like with lenses, but you already tried that. Will be interesting to hear others experience.

Congrats on your new camera (y)

Thanks, pretty pleased so far, but really have barely had a chance to play around with it. First things I've noticed is that it does feel noticeably bigger to hold than the EOS R. Also just feels a lot more "premium." The shutter noise is much quieter than the R too.

This has been in all the previews I've read, Canon has responded that its the IBIS and its normal.
So it can actually take a real bump to the camera with the IBIS loose inside without issues? I’m thinking a human with and without seatbelt in an accident , but perhaps it’s not comparable ...

Canon tests their designs pretty rigorously, they test shock, vibration, hot and cold, so I'd expect that its not a issue. I've seen one patent for the IBIS, it looked pretty sturdy, but a patent does not reveal how strong it actually is.

I decided to go ahead and order a R5, it may not arrive until Christmas though. That's no big deal.
