Re: Question about Panasonic 14-140mm versions

Would it be worth the effort to fix the shutter shock problem on the 100 or so users that are still shooting with the GX8, G7, GX7. Panasonic has improved the shutter and now use an electro mechanical shutter on their cameras released after the GX8.

Maybe not as the GX8 at least has no Noise or Bit-rate penalties using E-Shutter but they should have dealt with the issue in a lens redesign long before the GX8 launched . it`s not just those bodies - all the G series up to / Inc the 7 and GH1/2/3 suffer to some degree as do all the GF models of the same period , the  GX1 was the shutter shock king ..... so maybe not now but it was very lazy of panasonic to not even try to sort it when the GX8 and the cosmetically modded version of the lens was launched ..
