Re: Fuji XE1 silent shutter

Have had an XE1 for a couple of weeks now, I would say the XE1's shutter is much louder than the Pentax K7/K5, and from memory, slightly louder than the Oly EM5's.

But much quieter than my GF's Panasonic GF1 and I would say pretty much most Pany m43rds. From memory, I would also say the XE1 is much quieter than a Sony NEX or your average NiKanon DSLR.

On the street, with all the usual street-level noise, it likely won't be heard from 7 feet away.  But getting up close with a wide angle at 3-5 feet, it'll likely be heard by everyone.
