Yes I have owned one of these years ago and found it to be a very capable instrument. No I didn't find the shutter noisy, but then again those who have been brought up on today's offerings will tend to disagree. It was no louder than most of the other cameras available in the late 70's when it was on sale new.
It was a better camera than the KM sister model available at the time (Brighter screen) but much improved when it was replaced with the MX model. (With the exception of the LED lights, instead of needle metering).
I didn't class it as a professional model, just a well made upgrade of the old Spotmatic models, but there again some of those were used by professionals, so who knows?
