Ideas? Yes.

1. The A7 has electronic first curtain shutter, so it's about half as loud as the A7R and does not have any potential for IQ issues from shutter vibration.

2. This topic has been discussed ad nauseaum here.

3. If even the A7 is too loud for you, then it's not the right camera for you. Every camera has trade-offs (size, price, IQ, native lens availability, AF speed, ability to use legacy lenses, stealth mode, etc). Sounds like stealthiness is one of your must-haves... you need to figure out which items you're OK dropping instead.
