For those who have both nearby, could you compare the shutter loudness, firing the cameras both normally and from several feet away with self timer? I don't have a D70 near me at this time. I have a hunch the N80 will still be quieter, but I'd like to know for a potential performance usage.
Never had a D70 but I do have a D50 and I had a D80 and my N80 was a lot quieter than both. I sometimes regret getting rid of my N80 but with the amount of film I shoot my F100 and FE2 and FM3a cover my film use perfectly.

Thanks Jim. I plan to use the N80 to photograph a noise-sensitive event. I did notice last night that it sounds different with and without film...with film I can hear an additional film winding sound after the shutter, much like on the N90s, only quieter. I assume that's normal, but don't use the camera much, so it's hard to remember.
