Re: Electronic shutter/silent mode query.

In general the faster read speed has made the electronic shutter much more usable on the Mark II. I have taken close to 8,000 shots since I got mine two months ago, but only about 1,300 with the mechanical shutter. Rolling shutter was a pain on the E-M1, and it is still noticeable at times on the Mark II, but it is close to negligible under normal circumstances. If they can get the read speed up to say, 1/125 rolling shutter would be basically a thing of the past. Might be done, even on the Mark II. We didn't even have an electronic shutter on the E-M1 in the beginning, so who knows what firmware updates may bring.
