Ping Goffen - for Dandelion experience

I'm finding that MF on manual lenses is a PITA in the E-510.
Thank Olympus for Live View or I would be out in the cold.
IT works OK with static subjects but it's a pain with people and portraits.

I probably should have gone for the ZD 50 F2 as another member has pointed, but I was short on money so I went for the Zuiko OM 50mm F1.4
My next option is the Dandelion V3.

Before I give up on this lens there is something I need to know. I was under the impression that FC had about 1 second response time. This is quite some time when focusing @1.4 sometimes takes a hair of a turn on the focus ring, and by the time you get there, the camera may have already moved...

Is it really that slow? I don't want to put 47€ on a good adapter + chip + shipping if it doesn't help significantly.

BTW I'm pretty happy with the 50mm and IS @ up to 1/5 s but now I clearly see that focus has been a quite a miss and miss experience.
Thanks Olyflyer for predicting that...
