From what I use, in order from lower to louder noise:
Rolleiflex 3.5 < Yashica Mat 124 < M7 < ZM < R-D1 (s,x) < M9 <<< M8
Compacts-wise, Ricoh Gr-1s,v, Minolta Super Mini (28mm) , Mju II, Fuji Klasse S albeit fantastic little gems, definitely make more noise than the above mentioned cameras, due to their automatic film advance, enough to be noticed when shooting in quiet places.

And come to think of it, the sound of the shutter and film advance on a Pentax PZ-1 is very pleasing. It's the textbook "Camera shutter" sound, as in, I think it's the model used for the sounds played by camera phones

I've always like the tiny click sound of the leaf shutter on my Rolleiflex and my Mamiya 7ii I used to have.

Then again, I love love love the sound of my M4 and MP

The slow shutter speeds on a Contax II/III (or Kiev) rangefinder -- more of a 'zzzzt,' as opposed to a click.

The Leicaflex SL -- more of a low pitched "'crunch' as opposed to a click.

My girlfriend's Pentax 67 -- a gunshot.

That does sort of characterize the 500C/M, doesn't it? Although one of mine is a bit more like, "shaklump!"

My Leica M2 at 1/15 goes, "tock--tock-tic-tic." At around 1/60, it goes, "shalick." At higher speeds, it goes, "schick."

Best I can do.

Mamiya 6, Rolleiflex, Kodak Retina II, Leica M2, Olympus OM-D EM5, Nikon F5

The ugliest shutter sound (more due to film transport than shutter):
Leica Minilux and Olympus AF-1 Twin

Sublime: any Rollei twin-lens. Ridiculous: Rolleiflex 6008

The ones that have the least sound have the best sound IMO.

Among my cameras, I like the sound of the shutter made by the Standard Leica. It is super smooth. Considering the age of the camera, I find this amazing.
