Re: More test data with various settings, noticeable improvement.

How about simply trying a 2 second delayed shutter release. If things are better then, it is your technique which is a problem. In other words, camera movement from pressing the shutter button.

For what it's worth, I've found it useful on my E-PM2 to wrap my right hand completely around the camera,  so that my thumb is under the camera and my index finger extends all the way around the top. A squeezing motion instead of push sets off the release.

Very light camera. No shutter shock.
