As a leading authority on optical testing and product reviews, it occurred to the Lensrentals staff recently that we owed it to The Internet to explore the final frontier of camera comparisons, a comprehensive examination of shutter sounds. Our thorough and scientific testing covered multiple models from nearly every major camera manufacturer. After weeks of debate and analysis, we believe we’ve finally reached a consensus on which camera shutters are the best and which camera shutters are the worst. But first, let’s take a look at some of our most popular cameras, and how each of their shutters sound.

According to Lens Rentals the worst shutter sound comes from the Leica SL 601, Sony Alpha a77 II, and Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R. The best sounds come from Nikon D850, Olympus PEN E-PL7, and Pentax 645Z. And Canon?
