As to shutter speed, neither I nor anyone else is saying that the problem is independent of shutter speed. On the contrary, it is well known by now that the problem peaks at about 1/125 s (give or take 1/3 EV) and gradually declines on either side of the peak.

Adding a grip is likely to reduce (but not eliminate) the impact of shutter shock due to adding weight at a suitable location (right below the shutter).

Just to clarify; my question/suggestion of using the E-M5 portrait grip was so that the mass (rather than 'weight' if you'll forgive my being pedantic!) remains constant, as that enables the camera to be held in two alternative configurations wrt the shutter press/shutter angle.
