4/3 lens focus changes with firmware update
4 months ago

Has anyone else noticed a change with how focus works after the update?  I'm seeing my 50-200swd and ec 1.4 hunt more with SAF, although CAF seems to be better.

Is it just me or have you seen this?

I didn't know there was a FW update.

I assume you mean the E-M1 firmware update.  I personally have not noticed any difference in focus speed of either the 12-60 or EC14+50-200 for SAF after the update.  Maybe a little more accurate small center point focus selection with the EC14+50-200, but that may just be me adjusting to the camera.  I have not had enough time using CAF to judge any changes.

Sorry to be obtuse, I did mean the EM1 firmware update.  More specifically, particularly with BIFs the lens either locks on ok quickly or wanders way out of focus for quite a while.
