What does a Screwdrive Converted Pentax DA* 50-135mm F2.8 lens sound like?

Some people asked 'how loud' is a screwdrive converted Pentax DA* 50-135mm F2.8 lens. So I made a Youtube video comparing the the converted Pentax DA* to a Vivitar 100mm F3.5 macro (The plastic fantastic). It was captured with decent quality microphones so hopefully this gives you some idea what to expect after you convert your lens to screwdrive once your SDM fails, which is inevitable.
