As others have said, the "Quiet mode" isn't that quiet on any of the Nikon bodies.

I have a soft cover that I will use sometimes to greatly reduce the noise. It is an earlier version of this:

It does a pretty decent job of reducing the camera noise but does not completely eliminate it. It is also fairly awkward to shoot with, and gives you very limited access to camera controls. When I use it to shoot a performance, wedding, church service, etc, I use manual-everything on the camera and only adjust the shutter speed and aperture to tweak exposure while I am shooting. The way mine works, you only have access to controls that you can reach with your right hand.
