Oh wait... that's because no where in the manga have we seen Tobi use EMS. Hmm, wait a second, then my statement saying Tobi can't use EMS because of Izanagi could possibly be RIGHT. Holy shit, man what a turn around.
What I am saying is, Tobi could had used Izanagi against the first during their fight, losing powers of his EMS. Izanagi after being used several times or even once, could do severe damage to the eyes, we don't know for sure. We do know Tobi knows what Izanagi is, because he knew the name and knew what the jutsu was, and two we have not seen Tobi use EMS, judging by that, I am going to assume that his EMS is rendered useless, and I think its a plausible THEORY that it is true. Notice how I said THEORY, meaning not proven but it can be backed up.
I never said he used his EMS, I said his eye powers are fully intact. This is backed up with manga panels.
On the bottom left panel Itachi says that he (Madara) remains alive and well, as do his eyes and their power. This means that he still has the capability to use his EMS.
But, like I pointed out earlier, MS/EMS drains a significant amount of chakra from the user, much more than a standard sharingan. If Madara is still feeling his wounds from the fight with Hashirama, he might not have as great of a chakra pool to draw on and using his EMS would be a detriment than a benefit.
