Re: shutter shock

I certainly sometimes had the feeling the body of the G3 was flexing from the shutter impact (you can feel how the movement of parts of the camera relative to each other in the fingertips), not that I have seen results on the shots.

The G5 seems a bit more substantial, did not note anything like "body flex" on it.

With the G3 and the 100-300 you see quite strong disturbances between 1/40 and 1/200, I saw it on moonshots, got the camera off the tripod, on the floor and added a back of screws on top of the lens (about 2kg worth of screws), that did calm it down completely. I never noticed anything in normal shooting, but also did not look for it
