Is it just me or is the d800 shutter quieter/smoother after the FW update?

Re: Why would Nikon not mention it?

Perhaps for some of the presumptive changes (the better 0-60 acceleration, for example), but since shutter noise / sound seems to be an issue among some folks (crops up on a regular basis on the forum at least) I'd think Nikon would mention it.

After all, they did boast about the improved "3D" nature of the images on a D4 (although, in true Nikon fashion, they fail to actually make it clear what they're talking about leaving us to spend hours guessing).

Nikon certainly would do us a favor if they were a bit more verbose when it came to technical details.  It can't be all that hard to get one of the engineers to write up a basic list and then have marketing mess it up.
