I can add that also AF-C is working as expected:

Oh the shutter shock is there with MK2. Just use shutter speed between 0.5s and 1/20sec, put camera to multiexposure average mode and shoot the stack. Output is more or less messed up. Much less of an issue towards faster speeds or longer exposures.
Bad mouth here. Stacking multiexposure without alignement between frame abviously will cause blur because of any slight displacement of the camera or sensor between each frame. Stacking frames without alignment isn't a measure of shutter shock impact at all. I really don't like your incorrect statement above.

Multiexposure, then tripod, then mirror lock up. I think that the problem isn't the camera.
Yes, you are correct.

I prefer looking through a pentaprism viewfinder rather than an electronic one (DSLR vs mirrorless), however I recon that the future is for mirrorless cameras, compared to DSLRs they are:- Much more efficient with the light.- No vibrations that may affect the images.- Much less problems with AF.- Much more compact and lighter bodies.- Presumably cheaper.
For the time being, mirrorless models to the level of the Pentax K1 , are more expensive, and those mirrorless models bring no advantage for still photography, those MILC even have issues nicely put under the carpet by promoters of mirrorless. Currently, mechanical shutters of MILC cameras are usually lower quality compared to what's designed in DSLR, eventually produce more shutter shock do to light weight MILC bodies, and because the idea of MILC is to rely primarily on electronic shutter feature of the image sensor in order to simplify shutter actuation. The downside of electronic shutter and even EFCS is that it create some amount of distorsion on moving subjects, the Sony A9 partially addresses that, but not the other models. When using full mechanical shutter on the MILC camera, even the best models, generate more shutter shock that DSLRS. Evidence is the sharpness of the Nikon Z7 (brand new model) using mechanical shutter compared to the D850 with the same settings: reviewers have reported better sharpness with the D850, and test shots have shown the the Z7 suffer of a significant shutter shock when using its mechanical shutter. But obviously, promoters of mirrorless will nicely forget to refer to those issues, because mirrorless is the new thing to general business by making people switch from DSLR and renew their lenses as well.
