Your K-5 is definitely quiet! I wonder if the microphone in the camera that filmed your video had any affect the sound. Or is that how quiet the K-5 is to your own ears also?

It would be interesting to know how your K-5 sounds if you were to set it on a hard countertop in a room that has a bit of an echo. You wouldn't have to film it. You could just try it and tell us what you think.
Well the place it is is also very important I guess. My camera was on my sofa, absorbing sound I guess, and in the other clip the K-30 is on a hard plasticlike board that probably makes it louder. My K-5 is also very different in sound depending on the lens infront of it. Most quiet with FA*85mm (a big heavy lens) and louder with DA*55mm a lightweigth lens.

Pablom is referring to the video I posted on page 1. At least that's the comment he quoted. The K-30 definitely goes a lot longer before slowing down in the second video (on page 2).

P.S. As I mentioned yesterday, though, the person who posted the second FPS video on YouTube seems to have replaced it with a shorter version. In the shorter version, filming ends before the slowdown starts.
