K-30 Shutter actuation noise?

How does the K-30's shutter actuation noise compare with the K-5? A friend's K-5 was noticeably quieter than my K20D which I am contemplating on upgrading from fairly soon.

Never heard the K5 shutter sound before (YEAH, I know...). Wow, amazingly quiet. Just wow. My K10 can be heard miles away...

I had a K10D, so don't notice the difference.
