On the GH3 (which I own one of) it isn't great, it takes 1/10 a sec to read from the top to the bottom of the sensor, so if anything is moving it will be distorted:

On the GH3 (which I own one of) the electronic shutter is absolutely fantastic, and for the type of shooting that I do, its the mode of choice for 99% of my shots.

I despise the fact that the EM5 (which I own one of) does not have this feature.

If the EM1 (which I have ordered one of) has also omitted this extremely useful feature, I shall be one annoyed bunny and would like to know if there is a valid technical reason why this has been done. but before the wrath of Ga erupts, I'd like to know for certain one way or the other.
