The 20mp sensor from E-M1 Mark II is still one of the fastest, if not the fastest on the market. The one in A9 is faster only in specific shooting mode, where it uses its special readout mode, otherwise it is slower. The fastest APS-C sensor is the one in Fuji, I think, but it's also not as fast as this.

Could you elaborate on the A9?

Jim Kasson has nice analysis of A9's electronic shutter here and here . The thing is, this mode is not used when recording video. So A9 still produces significant rolling shutter jello effect in video. I'm not sure if all still modes use this super fast electronic shutter or not, though. Definitely in continuous shooting.
