I wouldn’t (yet) call it an unusable gimmick, but I do get the feeling that getting pixel-level sharp images will require preparation, organisation, and maybe a little luck.

It works handheld up to 1/60 s with an Olympus em1.3.

I keep hearing “oh, but it works perfectly on Panasonic” - I wonder if their merging of images does a bit of blurring, or smoothing, to eliminate problems in one shot of the sequence?

I am chiming in because coming from M43 I plan to move to FF. So this is an interesting topic, because I also consider the EM1.3 as an alternative to FF.

It’s iffy and poor. I think it’s as bad as it can get just short of being completely useless.

Only if one does not know how to use this tool.

As said above: great for product photography and reproduction work.

I've used it successfully - but it is still poorly implemented IMHO. Sony should at least offer in camera processing, rather than having to rely on their desktop tools, or free tools likeSonyPixelShift2DNG.
