I'm not so sure that is SS or SS & technique or just technique.

What results did you get as you progressively used slow shutter speeds, down to 1/15s?

Thanks Bob, I'm open to the idea it's technique, but I find it doubtful. Like I said, similar shots with my d90 and 50mm 1.8, shot at 1/100 with no stabilization were just fine. So were the shots from my lx7 at 90mm, but that is stabilized.

At any rate, 1/250 should be fast enough for a 90mm equivalent focal length to rule out any shake or poor technique on my end.

Here's a handheld shot at 1/40, which appears to be under the shutter shock threshold. It's relatively sharp, compared to the 1/250 shot at least.

I don't know. . . 1/40s is under the SS threshold. This doesn't rule out technique yet (not that I have a sense of your technique, just saying - drj3 touches on technique in this regard, but I think Jeff then takes that further [g]).

I tend to forget I shoot with a 1/8s shutter delay enabled all the time. Helps for IBIS in general, and I never see shutter shock (on the Pens or with the OM-Ds).
