Re: Loud shutter sound of Sony A7 series

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.
