E-P5 and shutter shock with the 17mm

So after trying an X-E2 for a couple of weeks I found that I just wasn't happy with the quality of auto focus.  It wasn't just the fact that it was a little slow, but I found it to often to miss-focus with face detection and a group of people.  This now leads me to continue my journey in looking for a camera for taking people photos both indoor and outdoors.  One of the strong contenders is the E-P5, but I can't quite figure out if shutter shock is going to be that big of a issue.  I read some people return the camera because of it and some don't see it at all.

So my question for owners of the 17mm, how prone is is this combination to shutter shock, and is there certain shutter speeds that are more prone?

Also I have seen anything about shutter shock and Panasonic cameras.  Is the GM1 and GX7 less prone then olympus cameras?
