I tried mine at all apertures out the window and into the room and also at a lamp. Turned off all room sounds including the wife and could just about hear the aperture blades closing at small apertures. My wife was less than two feet away before she could here even the slightest sound from it. AF is just silent.


You could make a lot of friends if you can explain the trick to turn off your wife

Pretty easy, actually.  Show her this thread, laugh loudly, and then await her reaction.  I have a feeling that she'll most certainly be "turned off."  At that point, there might also be some additional reactions, for which I will not take any responsibility.

Assuming you survive, please report back how it went.
