I read from the Oly forum that even the OM-D EM-1's CDAF fails to lock focus on horizontal contrast.

E-M5 works fine.

I think X-E2 is now on the top of the heap in terms of AF speed and accuracy for all mirrorless cameras.

Baseless guess.

I just tried my E-M1 and it has no issues with horizontal contrast. However, speaking as someone who owns an E-M1 and an X-E2 (and didn't expect the earth in terms of focus speed for the X-E2), the X-E2 is extremely fast to focus. Not always as fast as an E-M1 but sometimes faster. It really depends on the lens mounted on each camera. So albert may not be completely correct, but I don't think M43s users will be able to point at the focus speed of Fuji cameras as a weakness of any sort any more.
