    Hoping I can get some knowledgeable feedback. I have been reading about "shutter shock" and how that can be eliminated by using the electronic silent shutter in my E-M1. On the other hand, I read that with fast moving objects being photographed, that there can be blurring due to the way the sensor is read - row by row rather than globally. Any clarifying info is greatly appreciated. Presuming steadily held and a fast enough shutter for the subject, is there any advantage to electronic silent shutter vs having anti-shock set to "0" - other than not hearing the shutter activate? Thanks,

    No sound is the main advantage over Antishock, disadvantages are dependent on light/subject however the main one in my experience is banding with artificial light sources. Rolling shutter is always present however has a far less visible impact on most pictures.
