Re: Rolling shutter example, add yours

Yes, that's it.

If I know I'm going to be shooting people in a museum, shop, shopping mall or gallery I quite often take my Fuji X70 - it has a leaf shutter which is almost silent and isn't...

Cracker.
Extension tubes with the 40-150 and 300 Pros work a treat for this sort of thing and you can maintain a distance that stops you disturbing the insect (or getting stung!).

Re: If Sensor Size Doesn't Matter, Why Buy a Bigger One?

I use Capture One, and when I need to go via TIFFs I do indeed use 16-bit when the target app will accept that.

Re: E-M5 mk iii - same sensor as E-M1ii ?
