a Nikon J5 i had could handle some things with little or no rolling shutter

The J5 has (had) a sensor readout speed of approx 1/80s. So this is slow enough that you can provoke some rolling shutter effects by panning quickly. But for most use, it is good enough.

M4/3 cameras typically have a readout speed of approx 1/30s now, and that is quite often too slow. But the difference is not massive. I would expect that the next generation will provide approx 1/60s readout, which will be enough for a lot of use.

1/60s is E-M1 Mk II, Mk III, and 1X readout speed at less than ISO 8000.

I do believe Sony A9 and A9II readout speed is 1/160s.
