1. Phase-detection autofocus (even using still targets and center-point only) wasn’t nearly as accurate as contrast detection

2. The contrast-detection autofocus was about as accurate as the most careful manual focusing.

In most cases (especially with the latest M43 cameras) the autofocus is as good as you can get.  IMHO, M43 does a noticably better job than the other mirrorless formats I've tried.  I love the the touch shutter that will AF on the exact spot you pick and snap the picture in an instant.
