If you want to work without mirrorbox but a classic shutter you will still have the clack-clack-clack ... (and for the silent mirrors of PEntax cameras there us not much difference in sound level to that shutter sound).

For mirrorless you can shoot with electronic shutter which has disadvantages:

I still not know why we still have shutter sound when using electronic shutter with K1 - as LiveView means taking photos without impact of mirror action.

But anyway - the electronic shutter is not my way as I am looking for high end IQ. So a MILC camera - if I ever should use it - will have that clack-clack-clack - not much different form the Pentax cameras I use at the moment.

Keep on shooting ... !       clack-clack-clack

In fact, if you simply removed the mirror box and threw in an EVF, I think you could argue that we're at that point today.
