D850 mirror slap / shutter shock issue

Apologies if this is a known phenomenon and I just need to just live with / avoid it..

I'm shooting a brickwall for test shots, (VR on) shooting handheld (not on a tripod), manual focus to keep things constant - in S mode the shots are pretty blurred when pixel peeping but as soon as I switch mode dial to Q (EFCS enabled) the shots are perfectly sharp.  This is occurring on shutter speeds ranging from 50 - 300

This is the SS range I use most often with my 24-70

Anyone else with a D850 noticing this?  I guess I could just shoot in Q mode all the time?
