    Are there still any Olympians around?

    I am curious to hear opinions about the 'Multi-Shot' feature of the newest of the OM Olympus 5D MkII cameras?

    Sounds exciting enough to rip the gusset out of my nightie!

    Olympus EM5 Mark II perchance Walter?

    Great concept, interested to hear how it plays out in reality when there's moving objects in the mix... Now imagine if Sony did a firmware update and added that to the A7RII for still-lifes and landscapes! :twisted:

    Here is how DP Review explain it.

    You can draw your own conclusions from how you would use it, but no more than ISO 1600 and F8, plus the subject needs to be motionless makes it a bit of a gimmick in my book for general use.
    But for the right application it does expand the cameras capabilities.

    RAW files are usually around the same size in mb as the mega pixel count, this feature leaves you with a 100 mb file from a 16 mp sensor.

    The Sony A7RII is the mirrorless I would put my money down on if you want hi res. Better than half the RAW file size from it's 42 mp sensor and no usage limitation.
