While I agree with what you said 100% up to this point, I will have to 
disagree on this conclusion. One thing you forgot to mention is the user's 
psychology. It's probably a little bit like if you are holding a high 
quality manual focus camera that one *MIGHT* try harder to get better 
pictures :-) but anyway, I hate the Epson R-D1 shutter. It almost never 
bothers my subjects, but it bothers me. It's loud and clanky, although by 
other people's account, it's quieter than the Bessas...
