Here's a handheld shot at 1/40, which appears to be under the shutter shock threshold. It's relatively sharp, compared to the 1/250 shot at least.

I would put my money on up-down camera shake at 1/40, being at a 45mm FL.

Well I wouldn't rule that out at 1/40 either, but you'll notice I wasn't complaining about shutter shock in this example. This was supposed to be an example of a photo that wasgood in comparison to the ones showing obvious shutter shock at higher shutter speeds.

Ah gotcha. I think some replies were pointing out 1/40 should be outside the SS range.

If you have a return policy, why not just pick up another e-p5, or if you're inclined to get a e-m5, buy it and test it? If you were buying used, this would be another issue.

I can only afford to buy used. I picked this one up for $700, in like new condition. The seller offered to allow a return, if I paid a small restocking fee, which I'm still debating. I could pick up a used em5 for $650, so it would end up being about a wash.

Well I think obviously this one needs to be returned pronto. Unless like you like getting a headache when looking at your pictures...
