As Ken Strain pointed out, it's quite conceivable that there is something wrong with your particular copy of the E-P5. I wouldn't expect blur this bad at shutter speeds as high as 1/250 (where the shutter-shock problem is usually pretty much gone). If you like the E-P5 from other points of view, I think you should look for an opportunity to compare your copy with another one (e.g., find a shop where they sell the E-P5 and ask if you can take some test shots with it).

As to ways of working around the shutter shock you can expect to see even on a reasonably healthy copy (I would think my E-M5 counts as that), see this summary report of my experiences and my way of dealing with them:
