    Rolleiflex TLR shutter sound differences

    I remarked that the shutter sounds of an old (Rolleiflex E2 from 1960s) and newer (Rolleiflex F from 1970s) are quite different. To describe a sound is a bit difficult for me, however for the newer one it is more short and mechanical like "clic", but for the older one it is more loosy and soft like "shhlish". I know it is funny to describe in that way, but I really wonder if this is because of a design difference between the shutters or because of something else? Thanks

    Well, my two Rolleiflex T sounds different. One is the first model and one the third. The first one is louder, the third model is really really silent.

    I had a 2.8E2 that had sort of a zzziiip sound on the slow speeds that my 2.8F doesn't have. However I recently got a 2.8FX that again has the Zzzziiiip sound. I don't know?

    My 2.8C makes a sharp "kzzzing" sound. "kzzzzingclick" on the longer speeds. Nothing really quiet about it.
