On my new d700 focusing beep is barely audible even if d1 option is set to high. I compared sound to my three year old d50 and found that d50 sounded like a holler contest champion compared to my d700. Today I was making some trial shots at ocean beach, surf (very weak) was muffling the beeps and only the green point in viewfinder helped to make sure that camera caught focus.
Of course, people hearing vary and my sole reference point is d50 beeper so my request is the following: Owners of d50 and/or d70(s) please compare beep sound to d700 and share your volume estimates.
