Re: My PL100-400 does not like shutter shock

nicely done. a lot of detail and good information.

i'm relatively new to mirrorless and m4/3 so i'm learning a lot.

i was trying to use electronic shutter (to avoid shutter shock) when taking some macro pictures with my M1. it would not let me hold the shutter open as long as i wanted in electronic mode. i had to do mechanical shutter for the shot, about 1 second. i don't understand why and would long exposures benefit the most from electronic shutter?

good to hear that the gx8 doesn't have as much trouble with the 100-400. i bought the gx8 specifically for this lens because of the dual-IS support. handholding shots at 400mm (equiv 800mm) is amazing.
