Re: Olympus OM-D E-M1 low light auto focus performance

So, I watched your quick video and my first thought was, I wouldn't try to shoot the background under those conditions

Second was that, too my eye, it was focusing faster when High refresh rate was set

and my next thought was, I still wouldn't want to shoot under those conditions

So, I guess the reason I don't see any focus problems in low light / contrast situations is because of thoughts # 1 and 3

(but at least I think I'm up to speed on what you are getting at now Timur)

I think my 7D + L lenses would have struggled under the same conditions

So much to learn, so little time left to do it!
