GH4 and 100-300 slow AF?
4 months ago

Hi all

About to pull the trigger on getting a GH4 and a 100-300, however, I am reading quite a few reports of the AF being slow using this lens, and slow fame rates. Would appreciate more opinions on this, experiences, yays or nays.

BTW, I went to my local camera store to test it, but all they had was the Oly 75-300 and GH4 and EM1 - so no OIS on the GH4 - but AF speed seemed the same on both cameras.

Also, after testing both, I am now seriously leaning towards the GH4, just felt so much more comfortable in my hands, usability, etc - and given that I will be keeping the camera for at least 4-5 years, a few hundred dollars extra is not a big deal. And, I love the pinpoint focus - did a bunch of pseudo-birds-thru-branches photos (photos taken through tripod legs!) and it worked great.

Thanks - would appreciate comments on my question above.
