I'm checking out an S7000 for a while, trying to decide if I want to keep this camera or pay just a tad more and get a Nikon 8700. So far the S7000 seems pretty good, I like the solid feel, but the AF seems fairly loud when I'm taking pictures. Sorry I don't have any WAV samples to demonstrate.
Is this fairly normal?
I did play around with a Canon IS for a while, it is very quiet, so that might be why I'm just noticing the sound on the S7000.
