I have a question for anyone who knows. Why not just use the e shutter? I've been using it almost exclusively on my gx8 for the silent operation, and I see no negative results.

I used it with a 100-300 at 1/250 for surfing and the shots looked good (more than I can say for the surfers).

Whats the downside that takes people back to the mechanical shutter?

With any rapid movement inside the frame, you get distortion.

For instance, try taking a picture of a flying helicopter in e-shutter mode. You will see strongly bent rotor blades, making the picture unusable.

Also, when using flash you have to switch to mechanical shutter mode.
