Re: It's the shutter or the way the body transmits vibrations, not the grip/mass

Is it possible that better handling methods might reduce the problem of shutter shock?

I experienced the double image "shutter shock" last weekend shooting with a cheap 135mm adapted lens.  I was holding the camera by the lens and only activating the shutter with my other hand.  This was the first and only time I've seen it.

The camera was an E-PL5, and the lens (which also had severe purple fringing) was disassembled to use for parts to fix another lens.

It ain't easy being me, but someone's gotta do it.
