Is it correct that the EM1 doesn't have a silent, shock free electronic shutter option ??

If not, anyone know why not ? (or for that matter, why the EM5 doesn't have it either, even though the GH3 with apparently the same sensor does ?)

There is no mention of it in the specs or the operating manual, so I think it's pretty safe to assume it doesn't have the extremely useful silent electronic shutter which the recent Panasonic bodies have.

Bugger.

So do we know WHY ?

After all the rubbish about Panasonic's crippled electronics capability looks like the Sonyphiliacs are going to have to admit that Panny can do something right! LOL!

I;m not actually anti-Sony who do an amzing job and their sensors undoubtedly produce great IQ, but I am sick and tired of the mantra "why didn't Panasonic use the Sony sensor?".

Cheers, geoff
