Blasted EM-1 focusing! 12-40 is nice but much better on the GX7
9 months ago

I have just run a series of tests on the GX7 and EM-1 with 12-40 2.8, small af on both cameras, Manual settings, is-body on both. I am shocked, but the GX7 is consistently with e-shutter and m-shutter nailing focus, absolutely spot on and EM-1 is slightly out on the same target, which is quite big, the fox's head or is it shutter shock.

c/w GX7 and 12-40, its not even funny.

This shot is about 2 stops under-exposed to test the e vs mech shutter theory that the dr is limited to 10bits with the e-shutter, not seeing it btw.

Maybe its shutter shock on em-1, but gx7 just seems to be so much more reliable.
