How is focus speed on the Olympus OMD-EM1 vs the A7r?
Feb 5, 2014

Hi,

I have the A7r and am pleased with it. But I take lots of pictures of my kids sports activities and feel the focus speed is a bit slower than a dslr.

Would the Olympus OMD-EM1 be faster when it comes to AF speed and sports? I will keep the A7r as I'm addicted to fullframe :-), but am considering an aditional camera.

Any other good alternatives?
