I've concluded that the ZV-1 might have a bit of 'individuality' in its sounds. I listened to another one today which had a slightly different mechanical shutter sound and the same ping-twang noise, but much less so. I listened to an RX100vii which had no ping noise whatsoever despite having the same assembly. Maybe minor manufacturing tolerances is the cause on whatever is damping the assembly.

Strictly speaking, the RX100M7 has a different lens, and probably therefore a different shutter, to the ZV-1. It's the RX100M5 that has the identical lens and shutter (but a different body, which might transmit the sound slightly differently).

It's been an interesting exercise and I have at least learned that the sound probably isn't the harbinger of doom I first thought it might be!
