Ming Thein had a different experience:

I had the opportunity to try an E-5 (itself no slouch at AF speeds) side by side against the E-M5 with the same lenses: I don’t see any difference in focusing speeds or ability to jump quickly and decisively to different subject distances. This is a huge bonus for legacy 4/3 system users: all your glass is now usable at normal speed again, and the new body is both more capable and smaller than the outgoing one.


Since he doesn't call out which lenses he tested other than the 50-200, it could be somewhat lens dependent.  And of course, assuming he meant "EM-1" instead of "EM-5" there.
