OOF shots, not necessarily always front or always back focus, but definitely was off focus.

After some trial and error, I found that the PL25 was locking onto things I couldn't see, like a stray strand of hair. The shallow DOF tends to magnify focus errors.

Solution was to set the E3 AF to center point only, focus target small. That eliminated, for the most part, the focus errors.

Haven't really had any issues with the PL25 on the EM1 - AF's quickly, and accurately. The PL25 also AF'd quite nicely on the EM5 as well

I tried that just the way you advised but none of that worked. the panaleica will focus tack sharp when I add a fill in flash when using my e-30. if anyone have another method, please let me know.

thanks in advance
