We need an Electronic First Curtain Shutter

A very nice shot indeed.

I have had trouble shooting the moon with the GH2. The shutter vibration seems to blur the image too much. Therefore, I use the electronic shutter burst mode most of the time. It is a greatly reduced resolution and it is not a RAW file. However, it gets pretty good results.

I wonder if the OMD/EM-5 uses a different type of first curtain shutter? I know the Canon cameras use an electronic first curtain shutter and it eliminates this issue completely.
