Re: Is OM-d autofocus accurate?: Yes!

I don't even have the camera, but I know the answer to the question. Look at some of the very many OM-D pictures posted in this forum.

In general, contrast detect focus is more accurate than phase detect, because the same sensor that takes the picture is used for focus. As lenses get sharper and sensors get to 16MP and beyond the accuracy (or lack thereof, sometimes) of focus with separate phase detect sensors has been a topic of discussion.
