Re: OM-D needs more light, longer exposure times!

On the subject of comparison, the new NEXes can do continuous AF in HD movies, (so can the GF2.) The OMD cannot.

Eh? My OMD does continuous AF just fine with supported lenses. I mean it does a terrible job, but it's there in a pinch.

I'm a very happy OMD (and reasonably long time m4/3) owner who tried the first gen NEX bodies and was disappointed. But if I were looking seriously at manual lenses, I'd pick a NEX body. They're just better in that setting.
