Shake reduction

Just got my new k5ll, coming from a k200. My k200 you could feel and here the SR being turned on when I would power up the camera. On the k5ll I can't feel the same thing, I 'am sure everything is turned on, Is this normal or is there something not right?:

The dust removal mechanism on the k5 ultrasonic, so it's much much quieter. All is good

Thats normal, the Shake reduction system was upgraded on the K5 (and newer models).

The sound you hear is the sensor cleaning mechanism, check in your options to see if it's ON on your K5ii (sensor cleaning startup action I think it's called). But regardless the SR it is much much much quieter than on the K200. On my K5 I can't actually hear it.

You are not going to hear that clunky noise that you hear when starting your k200.
