If you are seeing the blur at 1/2000 shutter shock is the not the cause. It shows up in the 1/60 - 1/320 range, not faster or slower. The range varies from camera to camera and some lenses are more susceptible but I have never heard of it showing up at 1/2000 in any camera with any lens.

I have found the EFC in my G85 to be just as effective as the electronic shutter in eliminating shutter shock with none of the drawbacks. I have the camera set to use EFC all the time. There must be some drawback compared to the mechanical shutter but I have never noticed one.

Are you shooting though a glass window? Since you have had good results with other cameras I am guessing not but it never hurts to ask.
