Doesn't make sense.

A workaround might also be avoiding these shutter speeds. One could argue that the K-3iii does not directly support electronic shutter, and it's not certain they'll add that feature in a future firmware (they did that for the K-1); but there are alternatives.

Then best to leave the shot in as is....so the regular user will also know what shutter speeds to avoid. Take it out of the studio comparison and the masses may not notice so not pick up on the "workaround" you suggest

First, that wasn't what they did for the D780.

Second, there's a serious downside: DPReview would hide the K-3iii's maximum image quality (that is, its image quality in good light at ISO 100). People are supposed to do what, compare ISO 800-1600 images with the competition's ISO 100 taken with electronic shutters? That's not exactly fair, don't you think?

The place to tell us which shutter speeds to avoid is in the review, or perhaps a separate article. Don't worry, there will be more references about this shutter speed issue, more than for any other brand camera affected by it.
