If the rumor reports are true then the E-M1 focuses as fast with most 4/3 lenses as it does with m4/3 lenses and somewhat better then the E-5. If this holds true in testing, then they got the on chip PDAF right. CDAF with the new 12-40 is rumored to be very fast as well.

If the PDAF is faster than the E-5, then there will be a line at the door for this camera! (At least for the various people still holding Oly E cameras and glass.)

There has been nothing that I have come across posted about C-AF capabilities. We are going to have to wait & see on this one. However, the if E-M1 can successfully manage tracking countinuous autofocus at high frame rates and has the IQ and dynamic range found in the E-P5 then Olympus has a real winner on its hands that may prove to be more signficant than the E-M5.

It's obvious that is the goal (and not just for Oly!), although it'll be interesting to see how many revisions it takes to get there. Look at IBIS as an example, and it took years to "perfect" it, culminating with the EM5.
