Nevertheless, one thing that still baffles me are the indications we have of significant shutter shock with the camera on a heavy studio tripod (e.g., DPR studio scene samples and SLR Gear tests in their review of the 14-140 Mk II). What would be your take on that? Vibration rather than displacement of the camera as a whole? Or the latter, but if so where and how?

Could it be related to IBIS?  The floating sensor is jarred by the shutter, or power fluctuation causing unwanted movement?  I guess the way to test would be to somehow fix the sensor in place...
