I hate to ask a silly sounding question like this for my first post, but here it goes....
I bought an Olympus OM-D E-M1 recently and there's movement within the camera.
I haven't charged the battery yet, I was going to return it. Could this be the in camera
lens stabilization system? I'm thinking that I'll charge the battery and power it up and see
if once the camera powers up and engages the IC lens stab. it won't have the movement.
Any thoughts?

I contacted Olympus support and they said:

Thank you for contacting Olympus Technical Support.
The sound you are hearing is completely normal. It is the floating Image Stabilization assembly. When the camera is powered up the assembly is stabilized by a magnetic field but when the camera is powered down it can move around. The sound is considered normal and within the specification of the design.
