Re: Pentax K-50 Advice

My K -30, which is the previous model of the same camera,is a noisy beast. You don't just notice the focus motor, but mirror and shutter noise as well. This bothers me not at all-- I came straight from K and M body film Pentaxes, and none of them were exactly silent either. To me, the noise of a working camera is part of the whole experience.

I've been told by people I trust that it's actually noisiest right behind the camera. The photographer hears much more of it than the subject, and it doesn't seem to be too distracting so far. At least nobody can accuse you of sneaking up on them. If something happened to my K -30, I would replace it with a K-50 without a moment of concern except to my budget.
