Fuji X-H1: Too big and too quiet

I've shot Fuji X since 2012. Have had nearly a dozen different bodies. Currently two X-T2s and a dozen lenses.

After an hour or so of breaking in the X-H1+grip, I think this might be the first flagship I send back. It's positively enormous - so much so that my fingers don't reach the buttons comfortably (I'm a 6'1" 185lb man).
At the same time, it's also too quiet. Seriously. The shutter is eerily silent, almost disturbingly so. It lacks the satisfying recoil of almost every other camera I've owned, mirrorless or SLR. Not sure I can get used to it.

Would love to hear others' opinions. . .
