Hi Mike,

Can't help with this one I'm afraid....... I haven't experimented re this with my G1X yet and I don't have time right now.  There are some limitations.  If the flash is on, the shortest shutter speed is 1/2000, but that's independent of aperture.  The use of the compensation dial might also prevent extreme shutter speeds, but I don't think that would be in M mode......

I couldn't find a reference to it in the manual, but the manual has a few instances where it doesn't cover every fine detail.......

Leaf shutters often have limitations with fast speeds at wide apertures, but I don't know about this specifically with the G1X.  I couldn't see the specs in the manual.  They're apparently in the "Getting Started" Booklet but I couldn't lay my hands on it right now.

I hope someone else can help.  I might have another crack at it later.

Cheers, Rod
