    That's it really - I can't ask the question any better than the title does. Thanks!

    without global shutter, the camera with least rolling shutter I've seen would be the Nikon 1 system, seen a video on youtube panning both a Panasonic m43 model and a Nikon 1, the latter showed nearly no distortion.

    ..And I'm an idiot. I should have specified a 4/3 camera. Smaller sensors tend to have a shorter shutter transit times because they are smaller. The LX7 is really good. But I want a 4/3 sensor and mount - that's unless someone makes a smaller sensor with the same DR, which isn't likely.

    EM5 Mk II is pretty good at controlling rolling shutter, as is the GH4. Those are the 2 best options right now. Something a little cheaper - Panasonic G7

    That's interesting: I'd expected the GX7 to be especially good - I thought the 1/320 flash synch speed implied an extra fast shutter transit.
