More test data with various settings, noticeable improvement.
In reply to Mr Sincere, Jan 26, 2014

I quickly ran through some more settings (it's nice out, and I gotta get out and shoot something other than candy bar wrappers ).

Quick summary:

IS 1 vs IS Auto: Makes no difference. Didn't think it would, but thought it couldn't hurt to try.

Short Shutter Release: For some reason, enabling this creates a huge improvement. Does anyone have any idea why this might be? I can hear a click when I enable this, which makes me think it changes something mechanical. This improvement alone could almost be enough to make me keep the camera.

Anti-Shock at 1/8th of a second: Also makes a big difference. I anticipated this, but it doesn't hold much appeal to me since I like to shoot a lot of moving subjects. It seemed to create a noticeable difference in shutter lag.

Same as previous post: 2 is pretty bad shutter shock, 5 is no noticeable shock.
