I'm trying to search to find this out, but can't find anything definitive on it.

Is it correct that the EM1 doesn't have a silent, shock free electronic shutter option ??

If not, anyone know why not ? (or for that matter, why the EM5 doesn't have it either, even though the GH3 with apparently the same sensor does ?)

There is no mention of it in the specs or the operating manual, so I think it's pretty safe to assume it doesn't have the extremely useful silent electronic shutter which the recent Panasonic bodies have.

Bugger.

So do we know WHY ?
