Does the E-M1 or E-M5 MkII have a deeper buffer?

    I can't seem to find any info on the buffer depth of the E-M5 MkII. Does the E-M1 have a deeper buffer or are they about the same?

    Seems about the same as the E-M5 Mk1 - see

    The Mk2 supports the newer UHS-II cards though, making it much better for sequential L shooting (unlimited RAW at 5 FPS possible), this is even better than the E-M1. The E-M1 has a much deeper buffer so can go for a longer 9 FPS burst, but will take longer to clear the buffer due to only supporting UHS-I cards.
