I think every film shooter will attest to "mirror slap" being an issue at almost the exact same shutter speeds as shutter shock is in mirrorless cameras.

There is no mirror in E-M5. Mirror slap is a different beast.

Not really.  SLR mirror slap caused the film to move, and a specific range of shutter speeds often captured a blurred image.  We worked around it by either changing the shutter speed or using mirror lock up.  Some film bodies were (are) worse than others.  MTF shutter shock causes the exact same issue in that the film (sensor) is in the path of a shock wave, and the work around is exactly the same.
