I have the D700, D3, D7000, and D4.  The Nikon shutters(excluding the D7000) are like lawnmowers compared to the Canon 5d MK3(quiet mode) and 6d.  I have been at many assignments next to 5d MK3 and been embarassed how loud the Nikons are.  Even the D4 quiet mode is quite loud compare to 5d.  I tested the D600 and D800 and the D600 seem to be the quietest of the lot but not Canon quiet.

The D700 is super loud.  I've had to use the D7000 quiet mode in sensitive situations even though the image quality is terrible compared to the D4 and even D700.  I think it's the quietest Nikon camera I have ever used and I wish all Nikon cameras were this quiet.
