Re: I finally had to do it.

All this talk about the E-P5 SS finally got to me. I decided to do my own test.

The camera was handheld. Used the EVF. Camera in M mode. Lens 45/1.8. Aperture at f2.8.

The subject (cereal boxes) were approximately 4' away. The images are 100% crops from the originals. EXIF should be intact. No PP other than cropping the original images.

Thanks Jeff, this was very interesting and helpful.  You obviously aren't seeing any issues at all, so it would seem to me that this could vary from camera to camera.  Pure conjecture, but it could come down to something as simple as a random bit of internal electronics not being fastened as tightly in some cameras.

If someone is lurking and considering the EP5, this should at least assure them that not all cameras have this issue.

I'd be tempted to try another EP5 myself, but I was on the fence between the EP5 and EM5 anyway.  If I have a better chance of not getting shutter shock with an EM5, that might tip me back in that direction.

(And I'm glad I'm not the only one who uses food labels for camera testing.)

Thanks again.
