Now, we do have a mirrorless GH2, and I find its shutter fairly noisy compared to the D7000 one. I wonder what Panasonic did with it to make it that noisy

Back in the film days I was comparing camera vibration for astrophotography. I found that the shutter alone (mirror lock-up) in an Olympus OM-1 produced more vibration than both mirror and shutter in a Nikon F. I don't recall noise levels, but the point is that engineering effort and skill (or the lack there of) can make a shutter in one camera worse than a shutter and mirror in another.
