It is odd. I did find a couple generics on Amazon and already ordered them.

On a lighter note I've already scared the dog into hidding with the loud shutter. lol. My daughter is a natural ham and my son is in tolerating the old man phase so I expect some good shots as I break it in.

Yep, it IS loud! I had a K-r and was quite surprised (and a bit unhappy). Eventually, I returned the K-r because of the frontfocus-issue that couldn't be resolved although the K-r was serviced twice (FF under all sorts of artificial light sources). I am now a happy K7-shooter - it is almost silent.
