Re: Sean: there are noisy "streets"*, yet there are whisper-quiet "streets" too...

I am in education and have visited schools around the world. Even my Sony NEX 5N was far too loud to shoot in classrooms I observed because the shutter sound disrupts the learning very easily. This is the only time I've been "out" and wanted to have the quietness of the RX1. On regular street shots, I have yet to even be noticed, it seems. But I can see how there are situations similar to my classroom where the shutter might be too loud (e.g., walking by a sidewalk cafe on a quieter street and being less than 2 meters from a table and wanting to get a few shots of a cute couple or whatever). So yeah, a quiet shutter ultimately would be ideal even for me as one who just noted it doesn't often matter.
