Really?   We're waiting for technology to provide the answer (a reliable electronic shutter made affordable for the mass market).   I don't believe crying "Wolf!" will have any effect on when that will come to pass.


Of course is possible to design a cam around the shutter without this problem, otherwise all the other (mirrorless) cameras would suffer from the same issue. I hope they have solved it with the E-P5 shutter.

For some this is an issue and for some non issue, I can understand that, but why would we encourage them to do nothing to fix it by saying that there are walkarounds and everything is fine. It's nor fine and they should fix it without delay, with the current technology. You can disagree but you would benefit from it also.

Yes, you make sense, except for the mountain you've made out of a mole hill.   Shutter shock is caused by the shutter, and this isn't the only camera that it occurs on.   Yes, the manufacturers need to solve it, but in the meantime it's NOT a deal-breaking issue if the OM-D otherwise fits one's bill.

and where exactly did I made that mountain and said this is a deal breaker ?
