Not with mine

I've used the 4/3 PL25 on both EP1 and OM-D, have had no misfocus issues. It really is a superb lens.

What you might be seeing is the AF system locking onto details that you can't see - like a stray strand of hair. The PL25 does resolve very fine detail, better than most lenses, and it's shallow DOF tends to amplify any lapses in focus accuracy.

I had that issue with the PL25 on my E3, until I figured out that's what it was doing: locking onto detail I couldn't see. Haven't seen this behavior on the EP1 or OMD, though.
