Pan G9: when to use e-shutter or m-shutter?
1

Been studying up and reading about my new G9, an upgrade for my old GF1, but there is a feature I've never used before: electronic and mechanical shutters!

What are the reasons for selecting electronic shutter vs the mechanical shutter, and vice-versa (besides the top shutter speeds diff)?

For portraits, street life, and wildlife, I prefer the quietest operation. I assume that would be the E-shutter, but is there any difference in IQ between the 2 types? TIA
