When I first got it, I thought I'd test out the ZD 35-100 on both E3 and EM5.

Chose a somewhat difficult target, a clump of cattails growing in my back yard - lots of small things at different distances.

And what I found was - the E3 was faster, but it kept locking on the wrong target. Took three or four AF cycles to get lock on the center subject.

The EM5 was slower, but nailed the center target first time, every time.

I understand the reasons for accuracy on a m4/3 as it due to the CDAF. But from what I understand the E-M1 disables CDAF for all 4/3 lenses and purely uses PDAF.

So we become reliant on the implementation of Olympus's PDAF. And not the accurate but slow CDAF.
