Re: Shutter Shock: My ep5 is bad. Would an em5 do better?

Your problem sounds like the one DPR observed with the EP5.  A very light camera with light lenses is more prone to camera movement as the shutter is pressed.  If so, then it is not shutter shock, it is simply a large camera movement which the IBIS is incapable of reducing (see the Camera/Image shake section under the Image Quality section where they discuss the cause).  I must admit I had planned on buying an EP5 for my wife until I read the review.  This problem is not unique to the EP5, but potentially a problem with any small light weight camera without a grip.  The fact that the camera does not have an EVF, preventing a three point holding technique would certainly increase the problem.  This characteristic may account for many of the "shutter shock" forum topics.
