4. Do readers think the "shutter shock" problem is exaggerated or over-generalized to equipment where it doesn't really apply? I'm wondering whether "electronic shutter" will become a new must-

Probably. I've seen no evidence of shutter shock in any of the thousands of photos I've taken with an E-PL1 and E-M5 using the 25mm, 45mm, 100-300mm, and 12-50mm. Not to say that I don't think it exists, but just that it seems a bit overblown.

The circumstances surrounding it have to be either more complex (or perhaps more simple) than people are thinking. For example, at one point I thought I had a problem with the stabilization in the E-PL1, but then I realized it was a problem with rotational movement of the camera in a series of shots with me holding the camera out at arm's reach.
