Default Z1 Rattle

I just purchased a new Z1 sight unseen without actually having held one.
When I did get my hands on it I was surprised how small it was. The one thing that bothered me was that it felt as if the lens internals were loose. I can feel them move around ever so slightly when I gently shake the camera. Is this something to be concerned about or is this common with these mega zoom cameras?

I don't know about other digicams, but that's the way the Z1 is made. Mine does it too. I read a lot about it prior to getting one so I wasn't surprised by it. I guess it's just they way it's designed so the lens can move in and out. Feels weird, but works great.

P.s. - don't be shaking your camera.

Thanx for the quick reply.
I had read a lot of favorable reviews as well, but I do not recall anyone commenting on this.
Thanx again.
