I have a Mark II and used my buddies Mark III over the weekend. Obviously I knew the shutter would be quieter but now all I can hear is how loud my Mark II shutter is. Even my 50D shutter is SILENT compared to my MK2.

MK2 owners, do you find your shutter is really loud? Like to the point I don't think I could shoot a wedding with it.

It wasn't the shutter sound that got me when I first tried a 5Dii, it was the lack of a click from the shutter button, that took some getting used to!
It does have a much meatier sounding sound than my 40D , the Mark iii does have a quieter shutter, but heh, its a newer camera.
Doesnt really bother me, I love the sound that a (D)SLR makes.

That's a perfect way of putting it...meaty with no click.

The silent shutter mode on the 5dIII is really something else. I love it!

Really? I haaate the silent shutter sound, in saying that I haven't heard the 5d3 in the flesh, but god I hate that sound! The 40d and the 5d2 It just sounds weird!

PS. It looks weird saying I hate the "silent shutter" sound, for those of you who have never used it, it isn't silent! Should be called "Quieter shutter" mode :D

I don't know why but that Ka-Clunk shutter from the 5D2 always puts a smile on my face lol. I love it.

I love the sound of the 5D2 shutter, but when I tried the 5D3 it has a sharper sound, almost 1D like. I like both of them and wouldn't mind shooting with either :p Although I do sometimes wish I had a silent shutter options on my 5D2 as in really quiet situations it can be quite loud.

the 5d2 does have silent shutter modes?
or do you mean, truly silent?

Technically, it's the mirror slap sound rather than shutter...

Coincidentally, Jared Polin recently posted a video comparing the "silent" modes of various Nikon and Canon cameras. http://m.youtube.com/w​atch?v=Pgz9ekdTyZQ (external link) The 5D III is the runaway winner in this regard - it's not even close. My 1DX sounds like a large caliber machine gun by comparison. :)

No it does not. The MkIII has the option of setting the shutter to a silent mode in single or continuous shooting mode.

Is this the same thing we are talking about here?
