It seems still that the measured shutter's decibels are lower than with K-30.
That's interesting. Where did you see that?

I'd like to see a comparison between K-30, K-50 and K5. Some K-30 owners are mentioning their loud shutter noise. I have both the K5-II and K-50 and the K-50 is a bit louder but not extremely loud. The K-50 has a bit more noise when the mirror returns to the down position.

i read it in the french photo-test journal "Chasseur d'Images", although they don't indicate by how much the difference is.

I don't think the K30 is that loud, it's about the same if not slightly quieter than a Canon's not that much louder than a K7 or K5 I don't find the shutter loud...I have not used a K50, but side by side to a K7 the K30 isn't that much louder.

A big deficiency of DxOMark's measuring system is that they don't calculate a fashion score, based on body colour options and general camera aesthetics. K-50 beats the K-5's and the K-30 in that department.
Nothing a can of black spray paint can't fix.
