I'm seriously considering this camera but have one remaining concern. Looking at the studio test scene there are two patches of resolution lines that show a strange type of moire/crosshatch. These are the bottom two of the series that runs diagonally from the lower left to the upper right through the center.
I haven't seen this effect on any of the sample images posted. Has anyone noticed this effect in any real world images?
What lens and settings were used for the studio test scene?

Alberto6674: I still don't get this thing about blurred images. Why the E-P5 and not all the other cameras out there (especially mirrorless or compact cameras)?
If it was shutter shock, it could be said that the E-P5 has one of the most refined shutters in all the mirrorless cameras, so if should suffer less than others from this. If it's not shutter shock, as it seems from the testing they did, and just because of pressing the shutter... why don't cameras like the Fuji X-M1 or the Panasonic GF1/GF2/...GF5/GX1, Sony NEX5, etc... suffer it even more (since they don't have IS as the E-P5 has, which reduces this shake according to the tests)?
More testing seems to be needed to determine why this is occurring (especially comparing with other mirrorless cameras).
I had the E-P3 and have the E-M5 and E-P5. I have experienced this problem with all these cameras. I found it particularly bad when I first got the E-P3, but I think I've developed my technique to mostly work around the problem. I just thought the issue was just as alluded to in the review; that of a small camera and shaky hands trying to use the rear LCD with the shutter button.I find using the VF-2 helps a lot, helping to steady the camera against my eyeglasses.
ChrisPercival: I have and E-P5 with the 17/1.8. The magnify view and focus peaking work fine. My unit has firmware 1.0 for lens and camera.
Ah, I see. But focus peaking/magnify work in the S-AF + MF mode.
