Are you using the OM-D with or w/o grip?

I'm wondering if that makes a difference- the added mass might buffer shock?

Another thing to wonder about- do some cameras have weaker electromagnets, or perhaps not properly calibrated?

I find the IS is good on my camera, but not good enough for a handheld 2 second exposure... I do better braced against a tree though, and don't take out the tripod as often as I did w the E-520.

One more thing- most of the accounts of shutter shock I remember reading about occurred at specific shutter speeds, faster or slower and it went away, IIRC. Does your issue occur at only one shutter speed or across the board.

At this stage don't think that IS is the culprit...  What I find is that it is nearly impossible for me to get good sharp results hand holding in the 1/8 - 1/200 range without introducing an anti-shock delay.  Once the anti-shock delay is introduced the camera behavior with respect to hand held shots is more in line with what I expect.  My feeling is that I am a victim of "shutter shock"...
