Rented a D780 from Lens Rentals just to check one out as a possible purchase ... "try before buy". Interestingly, I have read in a few places that the shutter/mirror was quieter in the 780 than the D750, which I have ... nope - slightly louder if anything.

Lined up all the bodies I currently have and made a little video.

Here's a link on Drop Box.

Pretty sure I'm going to get a Z6ii ... jury still out on D780.

cheers Fred


technical notes:

- The bodies are all set to M 1/80th with body caps on.

- Placed them on a towel to decouple from the granite surface of my kitchen countertop.

- Video by iPhone 11

If you've got a decibel meter I'd say run a shutter test while recording the readings.
