Re shutter noise, If I recall correctly the shutter noise of my first DSLR - the K20D, sounded like a car door slamming compared to the K5 and the K3ii with the little "sssnick" those shutters / mirrors make.

The K-5 is my favourite pentax shutter sound so far. Soft sounding.

It is but you can't always see it in bright sunlight.
You can get cheap or expensive loupes, Slartifbartfast! Just keep one in the bag, for example:

I am using silent shutter most of the time unless I need flash or there is fast movement. I am very pleased with the Pentax implementation.
