How about simply trying a 2 second delayed shutter release. If things are better then, it is your technique which is a problem. In other words, camera movement from pressing the shutter button.

Thanks for the suggestion, but it's almost certainly not my technique.  At 1/250 and 90mm equivalent focal length, camera shake should be a non-issue, especially with image stabilization.  And as I've said before, I shot the same scene with a non-stablized d90/50mm combo, and all my shots were plenty sharp all the way down to 1/100.  Same with an LX7 at 90mm.

For what it's worth, I've found it useful on my E-PM2 to wrap my right hand completely around the camera, so that my thumb is under the camera and my index finger extends all the way around the top. A squeezing motion instead of push sets off the release.

Thanks for the tip, I'll give that a try.
