comment Can I deduce the max. shutter speed from other camera specs?
I think you're getting a little too pedantic between shutter speed and minimum exposure time. While it may be wrong, and makes the physicist in me very angry :-), "shutter speed" has a well defined meaning in the photography world, even if it's not a speed in any way.

comment Can I deduce the max. shutter speed from other camera specs?
For which the answer is "any camera will have a fast enough shutter" - it's other things you need to worry about, like the AF system.

comment Can I deduce the max. shutter speed from other camera specs?
And the other question I always ask at this point: why is it important to you what the max shutter speed is?

comment Is it assured that every type of lens will be made for a given interchangeable lens camera?
Probably the most obvious possibility is "mirrorless takes over the world and Canon produce only short registration distance lenses in the future". Substitute "Sony" for "Canon" and it's believable, but I fully admit Canon are in a very different situation.

Voting to close on the basis that speculation about lenses and lens mounts is the same as speculation about unreleased cameras, which is explicitly off-topic.

comment why would you have a light meter chose your aperture for you?
Most of this doesn't seem relevant to the situations being described in the question, in particular outdoor portraits - turning down the flash power is entirely not what you want to do as you're trying to get the flash to be on the same magnitude as the sunlight: that's why you need a faster shutter speed and high speed sync.

comment What is the reason of “banded” bokeh on Sony a7?
That sounds interesting - do you have a reference for this?

comment Stepping up my lighting for lego photography
Not a lighting comment, so I'm not going to post it as an answer, but my biggest comment on your photo would be that I find the background very distracting. It almost looks like a giant hand coming to pick up the orc.

comment How does focal length determine lens quality?
Although see also What is “angle of view” in photography? for potentially better explanations of what actual effect focal length has on a photo.

Only you can decide whether image quality or features is more important to you.

comment How advanced is phase detect AF for bird photography compared to contrast detect AF?
A couple of comments: 1) the first part of this question (about focusing systems) is great; the last sentence about holding on to the MFT systems is very much opinion based and I'd suggest removing it. 2) It's worth noting that more and more mirrorless cameras are now including some form of on-sensor PDAF (although not the G5), so this question isn't necessarily a straight mirrorless vs SLR debate any more.

comment What are the benefits of using a dedicated macro lens over a zoom with macro abilities
All your questions seem to pretty much be answered in the duplicate I've linked; if there's something not covered there, please edit your question to explain precisely what information you're looking for.

comment How do I most efficiently reduce noise on images from my Olympus TG-3?
As a hint for the future: if you'd posted some sample images as John Cavan suggested, we could you have told you this was the issue much quicker.

Have you tried a different SD card? If not, that's the first thing you should do.
