As much as I dislike EVFs...

As much as I dislike EVFs, there is one thing from an SLR I'd love to get rid of - the focal plane shutter. A true global electronic shutter seems to have no disadvantages (unlike an EVF), but several advantages:

  • No "shutter shock" (which I see even using MLU, when attached to my telescope).
  • Higher x-sync speed with flash without using the power-killing high-speed-sync.
  • And most importantly, elimination of the focal plane shutter effect.

That last one looks like this. When propeller is mostly horizontal, it's mostly straight:

But when it's vertical, the focal plane shutter effect bends it like this:

I'd love to have an SLR with a global electronic shutter.
