Thinking of picking up an N80 for those times when rewind noise of the F4s or N90s would be a distraction. Anyone use it in the slow (quiet) rewind mode? How is it? My Canon EOS A2 is so quiet that you practically can't hear it from a few feet away in a busy room. But that camera uses a belt drive; I believe the N80 still uses gears, so I'm not certain if it would be as quiet at rewind as the Canon.
