Well, it's a fair old 'clunk' and no mistake.

I had a go with a mate's today and actually commented on the clunky shutter noise so I assume it's normal.

I must admit I noticed the distinct noise when I first started using my 50D, but got to admit I am used to it and it is a solid sound rather than clunky.

Stick it next to a 20D and it should be quieter. It is powered up and down so its not quiet, but it should have a "soft" nature to its end of travel. If it clangs I would worry.

My 20d is loud enough to scare small children and animals. I was thinking about going to the 50d but am concerned if its going to be similar

LOL - you think the 20D is loud then try a 5DII, it makes the 20D sound discreet.

I disagree. I've owned both the 20D and the 5DII. The former was louder if anything - certainly not discreet!

I am amazed canon never see a clunky shutter as a problem, they might as well fit a air horn on the flash shoe to alert anything you are shooting as well..
