When I unboxed my A7R and heard the shutter, I was so appalled by the sound that I almost re-boxed it, on the spot, to ship it back. The funny thing is, I have grown to actually like it. I'm glad I kept the camera!

The shutter that really annoys me is my D800E. Now that shutter is loud and not very pleasant sounding. I have never gotten used to it. I guess that is the price one pays for full-frame with 36MP; and in the case of the A7R, continuous Live View. With the great image quality I get, I can live with these sounds. If I want quiet, I just use my RX1R.

I am now completely accustomed to the sound of the a7 and a7R shutter. My current set of a7R subjects are fire trunks, and they seem to be completely insensible to the sound.

OTOH, I agree that the RX1 shutter is a marvel!
