Re: Why does in-camera setting affect this?
In reply to Brian Mosley, Apr 23, 2012

I can understand they may not want to do it as there may be some limited situation where AF won't work if the area is close to clicking and the Vivid/contrast setting push it to clip and then you can no longer AF. But at least it should be an option that can be enabled or disable, without impacting the JPEG output.

If this is true then why don't the manufacturer use the optimum jpeg setting for AF and just ignore the in-camera settings. Leave the in-camera JPEG settings for when the shutter is pressed.

Good question, perhaps this would be an easy enhancement to improve CDAF speed.

I'll send in the suggestion to Olympus.
