A firmware update comes with documented fixes, but sometimes also undocumented ones because the manufacturer does not openly want to admit there was a fault. (I do believe the 2.0 firmware update to the E-M5 makes a difference in shutter shock issues yet there is no mention of anything in the update relating to shutter shock because obviously Olympus does not want to admit there is a shutter shock issue in the first place.)

Ahh, that could be why I didn't find anything wonky with my test this evening.

I wonder if it was a silly bug, like the E-M1 reading the a different part of the sensor, than the lines with the phase sensors on it. One single line strikes me as that sort of bug.
