My friend bought a 650D from the Amazon Black Friday offering but discovered that when you gently shake the camera there is a distinct rattle emanating from the flash area. I quickly googled this and found a forum where they said the sound was normal but I want a few more opinions. Does anyone else have the same camera and if they do, do they get the rattle as well?

It might be the orientation sensor that tells the camera whether its shooting portrait or landscape.

I seem to recall that my 350D rattled a bit, but my 7D and 5D don't. So I think the build quality and price reflects that they are engineered a lot better.

My 400D did this as well, its the flash pop up mechanism which is deliberately loose IIRC
