cdaf pdaf ?
Feb 10, 2012

This is to the camera engineers out there. What seems to be the stumbling block to pdaf lenses i.e. HG & SHG to get them to focus fast enough (use this term loosely)on a cdaf camera i.e OM-D E-M5? On this forum I read that too many people are unhappy with the lack of AF speed when PDAF is on a CDAF. What technology is Oly missing in the adapter or camera or even the lenses?

I also read that the later HG & SHG lenses (one example 12-60mm) was developed for both CDAF and PDAF, is this true, and can anyone name the other "later" lenses?
