K-30, dust removal sonic or supersonic?

Hello all,

just received my K-30 today. Very happy with it so far. One thing surprised me: the start-up (or shut-down) dust removal systems rattles just like my old GX-10 at low frequencies. I was expecting it to be supersonic (which is more effective, isn't it?).
So, does the K-30 vibrate both at sonic and supersonic frequencies or is the supersonic dust cleaning something they left off this camera model?

I believe the rattling is actually more effective than the high frequency sound.

Only the high-end bodies (like the K-5) have supersonic DRII, unfortunately.
