The silence of the shutters
Jan 8, 2014

Hello. First post from a lurker...

Im a old streetshooter that has had a long time, 20 years, break from the streets. Ive been managing my shooting with simple P&S:s and an now old Eos 350D, mostly since ive used my pics to publish on the web in different projects during the last 15 years.

Now I have started to feel the call of the streets again and has started to look for a suitable camera, back in the day I used a Konica Hexar for its silent shutter and great 35 - 2,0 lens, so im looking for something silent and compact like this. Im clear with that the X100S is almost a perfect tool for me but since I need a bit more flexibility due to only have funds for 1 camera, Ive decided against it since the need for a zoom is big for me nowdays, and I can start with that and ad a prime after a while. But the sound level of the  shutter is really important and Ive not read much about that when searching the web about the X line...

So Im very interested in how much/little the shutters sounds on the X-M1, X-E1/2 mostly, but even the X-PRO1 since Ive might score a great deal on a used one. I have a buddy who has a Nex6 and that one has a clearly to loud shutter from my point of view. So I hope that some of you can give some feedback on this subject...

Please excuse my language if its not correct since english is not native tounge.

Thanks in advance
