There s a shutter of course and operations are way more complicated than with an SLR : for live view the shutter is open. When you take a picture, first the shutter is closed, before reopening for the exposure duration, then it closes and open again for live view.

The Olympus cameras have an antishock option for long exposures on tripod (unlike the Panasonic). If you make a search on the forum, you will see that some cameras seem to suffer from shutter vibrations at some speeds. It is worse with some lenses. Recently the GX1 and PZ-14-42 X lenses have shown serious problems (make a search for William Castleman, he has posted interesting scientific tests about the link between those vibration to shutter speeds)
