Re: I don't think so...

I also saw the tests done by others and I tried to confirm the issue for my OM-D...
- I took LR4.1 and sorted all my pictures (about 10k) for shutterspeed 1/50-1/120. --> No evidence of significant blurring, in fact I found some of my favorite pictures I printed large in this bunch.
- Yesterday after reading the posting mentioned I took my 45mm and my 14-150mm and tested different speeds with/without shutter delay. ---> above 1/(focal length) pictures are sharp, with slower speeds the are slightly blurred. This can be expected anyhow.

Overall findings: from 1/100sec to 1/25sec the blurr amount stays on a similar noticable but low level which was not expected by me. I would expect more blurring with longer shutter time. But this can also be interpreted as a positive result from IBIS working fine ...

So for me it is very hard to see the shutter syndrome, I still think my OM-D is a quite reliable working horse ...
