----- but you loose your top end of 1/8000th  and flash sync falls from 250th to 1/80th of a second.

Flash sync on the upgrade is 1/180 not 1/80. As a lot of radio transmitters will only sync up to 1/125 with focal plane shutters it's not much of a loss for the few that use strobes with the M.

Hank, thanks for pointing out my typo.  You are correct, it is 180th of a second.
