I got a chance to play around with the M3 and EVF today...
Hello shunsai, thank you for your feedback, it's greatly appreciated!
One thing I have wondered is whether the new M3 (or older M/M2) make any "shutter" sound or other noise when taking a photo?
Personally I'd love a camera that's completely quiet for discrete street photography in public places, without the annoying clicking my SL1 makes - even in quiet mode.
That can just ruin the whole atmosphere when you take pictures of someone completely oblivious, or skittish animals...
Can't speak for the M2 or M3 as I don't have them, but the original M definitely has a shutter sound - and it's certainly audible in a quiet room (during a presentation, while I took photos for the event, the shutter sounds had a couple people turning back towards me briefly).
I will say, though, that it is quieter than the SL1. Noticeably so.
