suck.  Obviously the DPR writer didn't know how to use the camera.  I found the E-5 to focus fast and accurately on what ever the focus point is on.  When all points are on the camera pick whichever point it sees and can lock on .  Using a single, small point, and being able to keep the point where I want it, I have always gotten excellent results, not missed focus.  I can only guess that either my copy of the E-5 is far superior to others who cannot get good tracking, or those others just cant keep the focus point on the target.  Including the reviewer.  I very seldom miss focus when I have the selected focus point on my target, even moving and tracking.

How can anyone expect the camera to know where in the frame you want focus to be other than selecting a single point?
