Re: Video continuous focus problem with epl1 + 20mm

20mm is too slow for video, period. 14mm is much snappier, the 12mm is even faster than 14mm when paired on Oly machine, the focus is instant like mid range DSLR on indoor

I used to have the e-l1+20mm and to e-pl3+20mm, but now I use e-m5+14mm as snapshot camera, consider the size difference is not that much but a much better overall experience in terms of speed and IS video quality, and E-M5's better high iso quality can compensate for the F1.7 to F2.5 loss (except bokeh off coure, but there is 45mm 1.8 for that)
