As an owner of the OMD I strongly disagree with that.

On the OMD use AFC on a subject that isn't moving and it is constantly hunting back and forth to keep confirming focus.

Use AFC on a PDAF camera and it will lock on to a static subject and have no need to keep hunting.

The "constant hunting" as you call it is absolutely no problem at all. Just press the shutter release and the picture will be taken dead on more than 1/10 of a second later. So your "strong disagreement" is meaningless. Aside from that, I've found that most of the time the "constant seeking" you're talking about doesn't happen at all and, to quote you, "it will lock on to a static subject and have no need to keep hunting." I don't know what the problem is that you have with the OMD autofocusing. It is magnificent.
