K20D AE-L button soft?


Just aquired a K20D but the AE-L button doesnt have the click like other buttons. Is it normal or is mine half broken?
The shutter sound is just gorgeous compared to my K-5. It sounds like a camera.

My EA-L button feels the same as the others. Might be something up with it.

Heh, I just noticed how loud and mechanical my K20D's shutter sounds, and was wondering how the K5-2 sounds.

Mine has no click but I see the little asterix come in the bottom right of the viewfinder when activated.

It is in a fairly exposed spot and is just above the sweaty thumb pad grip so possibly just a bit gummed up without the contact being impaired.
