I read a couple other reviews that said focus was comparable, and one even said it was faster than the E5. Yep, we're going to have to compare various reviews as methodology can vary quite a bit.

Those are not reviews. They are previews in which people are repeating what the Olympus press materials say "as good, if not better."

Best we can hope is that DPReview didn't have the focus setting right. They may be using it in Hybrid or CDAF mode, when it probably should be PDAF mode only for legacy lenses.

I still need a new body for my 12-60, so I may pick it up, but after seeing Olympus is still playing catch-up with this new model (wow, an EM5 that focuses old lenses) I'm glad I moved on to a brand that can actually focus moving objects.

Actually, they are hands on previews of the camera. Both written blogs and video reviews.

If, in my lifetime, I will have produced just one image that makes a real difference in the life of another, I will have achieved my highest goal as a photographer.
