It does have silent shutter, although the straight up shutter mode is pretty quiet.
Thanks for the sample. The 5DS certainly seems like a capable camera and a go to for best detail. However, I don't think it eliminates other cameras. I've seen the Peter Hurley videos in which he's shooting with or being a guest on the Grid. While he's certainly a successful commercial photographer, I can't say he strikes me as someone who's technical! Because in the Grid episode, he even said he started off as a medium format digital shooter, I take his recommendations with a grain of salt. I could see the need for the highest MP if you're going to be doing a large print. For my uses, don't think I could justify the 5DS (only on rare occasions would it be better then the 5D3). I'm really interested in seeing what the August announcements will be. If it's a 5D4, will it be higher DR and 4k video...who knows, but those would be some nice features for me
Canons do have quiet shutters in general: when I first got the 5D3, I was impressed with it's relatively quiet noise. My coworkers at work that are the photographers have to use Nikon. I've noticed the D7100 has a loud shutter whether it's in normal or silent mode...the D810 is better, but still louder then the 5D series.
