Sad hands OR shutter shock! (Clue - the latter!) Pix!!!
Jul 25, 2014

I decided to run a quick test on the 12-32 on the GM1 I bought for a very good price on eBay (faulty, the flash won’t fold down properly! Oh b*gger!) so I put the lens on my trusty G6 and photographed the wall of my daughter's house.

The results were very disappointing.

Then I had a thought -- sure it was handheld, but importantly I was in 1/100 territory -- so I duplicated a couple of shots with the electronic shutter.

Have a look. As I said, hand held, but duplication of the shots in both modes produced consistent results. This was from the center of the image at 100%.

mechanical shutter

Electronic shutter

Just for comparison - the 12-35 @ 35 but at f2.8 which allowed a safe shutter speed of 1/500.

Cheers, geoff
