Has anybody yet tested (I haven't) the shutter shock issue using the battery grip on the E-M5?

I might have seen one or more tests regarding the impact of the grip but I no longer remember the details well enough to search for them more effectively than you can do yourself.

Thanks Lester, well done! I find your 'peak' at 1/40sec interesting while everyone is saying 1/80 - 1/150sec.

It's perhaps important to note that lester's peak at 1/40 was with the grip attached. Without the grip attached, his peak was 1/80.

Furthermore, this phenomenon seems to be affected by a number of different variables - camera body, lens, photographer's camera-holding technique, to name a few.

The point is that I don't think it would be too surprising to find that one photographer's statistical peak, all other things (camera body, lens, etc.) being equal, was different than another photographer's, due to potentially hard-to-quantify differences in camera-holding technique.
