  • I've been having a similar problem with my 14-140 II and G5.  Got the lens back in August and have had a lot of soft shots.  Eventually realized it suffers from shutter shock way more than all my ...
  • I know they both have e-shutter, but that can't be used when the subject is moving. Unless the sensor readout is fast enough to avoid jello effect, but I thought I read it was only 50% faster ...
  • Any thoughts on why the GH4 didn't get EFCS when the GM1 has it? Or whether it could come later via firmware? My 14-140 II is very susceptible to shutter shock on my G5 and I would love to see a ...
  • First, I would disagree that the GX7 and GM1 used in the test are obsolete.  I would also not consider the G5, G6, and GH3 to be obsolete, and these camera have also been reported to cause shutter ...
  • Thanks for the input.  I generally don't have a problem freezing motion.  I do use the FL500 flash indoors and make sure shutter speed is high enough outdoors.  The issue I have is making sure the ...
  • Thanks for all the very helpful replies.  I'll continue to practice and try different things.  As some have mentioned, these photos would look fine printed at 8x10.  So I'm not disappointed in ...
  • I'm getting the original on both photos when I click through. No face recognition.  AFS and single point focus with the box as small as possible, targeting the eyes.  Not necessarily successfully, ...
  • G5 + 14-140 II Both photos taken within moments of each other, same camera settings, except top photo is ISO 250 and bottom is ISO 200.  Both processed in LR with sharpness = 35, output sharpness = ...

  • Created discussions m4/3 for moving subjects
    I moved from compact cameras to m4/3 a couple years ago when our son was born.  I quickly learned that getting a nicer camera doesn't automatically mean better pictures, and have spent a lot of ...
  • Replied in Do I Win?
    I met this challenge in a different thread awhile back, but it made no difference to those insisting that shutter shock doesn't exist.  Evidently my tripod doesn't know how to hold a camera.  So, ...
  • Same here with my G5 and 14-140/3.5.  I posted my test method and the resulting images a couple months ago in a few threads.  Some participants weren't willing to let repeatable results get in the ...
  • I also had soft shots upon getting started with this lens. I confirmed through testing that my copy is susceptible to shock at shutter speeds below 1/400 with my G5. There are similar accounts ...
  • Replied in G7 Speculation
    Good post.   Having read this, I agree I'd rather have minimum shutter speed in A mode than auto ISO in M mode.
  • Replied in G7 Speculation
    I agree with this.  Although the "auto iso" really isn't a new feature in the typical sense, since as far as I know, my G5 already has this capability.  All it would take is adjusting a line of ...
  • I can't compare to any of those other lenses, but I've been happy with my 100-300.  Once in awhile I question whether I'd have been better off investing in a Canon or Nikon DSLR system instead of ...

  • Those pics came out very well.  I use the 100-300 with my G5 and, like yourself, have found that I can't do much cropping.  The only lens I have which I've conclusively identified shutter shock is ...
  • The OP asked what shutter shock is, not whether people believe in it. Whether a given individual is experiencing the phenomenon with his/her gear vs using wrong shooting technique is a separate ...
