Why the EM5II did not get the focus stacking like EM1?

    It doesn't have the required buffer needed to store and combine all of the images needed, the E-M1 does.

    Not sure that's true. Em5II has enough buffer for hi-res mode.

    I think it's maybe a marketing decision to give Em1 an extra feature.

    Likely to continue to keep E-M1 as the top of the line body.

    Eteless was correct in the beginning. It does not have the same continuos shooting buffer as the E-M1. That was confirmed by Jamie Mcdonald, an Olympus trailblazer who came back from the Olympus meeting not too long ago. Olympus wanted to put it in the E-M5 II but can't.
