K-5 Dust Removal


Link Posted 20/04/2011 - 03:20
I received a new K-5 body 2 months ago because of the sensor stain and i just noticed that when the camera turns on (or select dust removal from the menu) i could hear the high pitch sound (assuming it must be the dust removal system) on my 1st body, while the new body i cant hear this distinctive sound anymore (even when i put my ear next to the body)
is this normal?

p.s the 1st body i bought was pretty much from the first batch of K-5 (bought it 2weeks after its launch date)
2nd body was manufactured from feb 2011.

On the K7 the Dust Removal is a quite distinctive high pitched sound, on my K5 it is silent (and from what I've read elsewhere this is the norm). Sounds (ha) like yours is fine !
