Re: Shutter shock with E-M5 and 45/1.8. And a tractor

For some tests of shutter shock on Panasonic cameras, see here:

I've read this a couple of times and can't tell whether he sees the problem at all focal lengths or just the longer ones. Saying that, in one case, the problem goes away when you go above 1/250 seems to be suggesting that the 1/focal length shutter rule seems to be applying, albeit for different reasons. Although on the face of it, that looks to be a thorough proof it just asks more questions that it answers.

and here (bottom of page):

This is the long-standing issue with the power zoom lens that caused me to buy the manual version. I have to say I've not seen any problems of this kind with the 20mm, 14-42 manual zoom or 45-200 zoom. Which isn't to say they're not there, just than I haven't seen them.

All very odd.
