Shutter priority mode could spoil it?

I agree Paul, something else is going on. Certainly not typical with the E-M1II/300f4, its capable of much much better.

Yep. I have commented about this a couple of times in this thread but nobody seems to care.

Maybe it's the (sync) IS doing something wrong. Maybe it's an shutter priority vs. focus (/IS) priority issue*?

Shutter priority means that the photo is taken NO MATTER WHAT.

NO MATTER WHAT includes situations where the AF is not acquired, or when the IS is not settled down.

A long half-press of the shutter/back-(focus)-button before taking the shot should take care of it, but all cameras are different. Is it possible to settle the IS down by using back-button-focus? Is the procedure to use BBF to focus and half press of the shutter button to stabilize the IS, and to set focus priority on?

*I don't know what this is called in the Olympus system.
