I have my beep and light turned off too. With my SDM lens a k-5, its very quiet, only the size of the thing grabs peoples attention. The AF noise is louder than the beep I think, hopefully pentax makes more "quiet" focusing lenses soon, dc/sdm/usm/whatever doesn't matter, so long as it doesn't sound like a drill.

When i started this thread, i had just turned off the focus beep and all other sounds. I had kind of gotten use to the focus beep in particular. But i left them off and i like it better. I was doing some headshots during auditions yesterday, and - no noise!

AF screw noise - I don't notice that as much as the beeping except for some lenses. Macro lenses seem to take forever because of the fine threads, i suppose. I don't notice AF noise at all on the smaller lenses.
