I see, but have you used K30 ?
(If I remember correctly), the K30, which I checked, had very similar sound as that of K100D and K110

Seriously, the K20D has a preferable shutter sound to the K30? I was amazed at how loud the K20D was when I first picked it up, as I already had a Nikon and wondered if something was broken with the K20D mechanism. I then found out that that's the way it is.

I didn't make the statement but was reacting to someone else's. I don't really know which is the case. I stopped by B&H last week and didn't notice that it was loud but then again the store was.

It is definitely loud, but I'm happy with mine all the same. It probably will drive me crazy over time, but then maybe not. I have an all Pentax system now, with a couple of diversions, and that's good. I hope they continue to evolve. It's a good camera.

I am talking about the total sound which includes shutter sound as well as mirror flop. I would suggest that you try K5 and K30 in the same shop and see if the sound annoys you. It did to me. I returned K30 to get K5 (searched Internet for sound comparison). Now that I have a K5, there is a chance that I will stick with Pentax for a while. I would not have said that if I had only K30. I have an old (bought used) K100D which I used in a shopping mall with my friend, while he was using a Canon T4i. K100D sounded really cheap and my friend commented that my camera sounded like real old no-frills SLRs (that he heard may be 20 years ago).

K20D also has somewhat similar sound as that of K100D, but it also has more prominent shutter release sound, which I like to hear rather than a thunderous mirror flop.
