k-3 sensor cleaning

On my old k-20 when set on sensor cleaning you could feeling something vibrating, on my k-3 nothing happens when I turn it on. Is this right?

Yep, since K-7 it's "ultrasonic". Well, nearly ultrasonic - you might hear the high pitched buzz if you put your ear to the camera. Certainly works a whole lot better too.

Yes, nothing to worry about. The K-3 has a silent ultrasonic dust removal system.

I can verify that it's silent for those of us over the age of 18!
