I think I read here, or on FM, of a drawback to an electronic shutter? Do not recall what that was.

Maybe this: the Z9 electronic shutter is slower in transit time than a 1982 FM2. It's about 50% slower than the D850. This is why the flash sync is only 1/200 s.

Depending on the flash it can also do 1/250.

Good point. If the readout time is 3.7ms per that link, then there is a 300us time window for a short duration flash at a 1/250 shutter. But that's due to the speed of the flash, not the camera. The FM2 could potentially do the same with a fast flash.
