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.
Yes, it could be a marketing decision. But in this specific case Olympus was asked about this and told that the reason is the buffer size: hi-res mode uses less resources then focus stacking:

Confirmation is always good, I knew the reason I just didn't have anything to back it up
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.
OK, good info. Thanks.
