Comparison between Z-1P, K10D, K-x and K-5:

I don't have a decibel meter, but I was amazed at how similar the volumes were.

Just goes to show how unusable these kind of online "tests" are... tests conditions (setup... not a good idea to put the cameras on a bed mattress...) audio equipment used to record and play... and so on and so forth. At the end of the day, there is just nothing left in audio quality.

I have used (and still do) a Z1P, a K10, and have tried Kx and K5 and anyone who has done so for any period of time will tell you how different the sounds of these shutter/mirrors are in real life.

The Z1P is quite loud and "mechanical", the K10 is more "metallic" (somehow like a pair of scissors) and the Kx/Kr are a bit in between with a loud "clap" while the K5 is much quieter/damped.

Actually, the K5 is probably the quietest of all DSLR I have ever tried.
