Re: Your response is funny...

Want to try that again without using acronyms? Mirrorless/EVIL cameras need good light to focus in a timely manner, and accurately.

I'm not sure what mirrorless cameras you have used recently, but the current M43 are fast and very accurate even in low light. I just took the GH3 into an unlit room, and it instantly locked focus on some curtains at the far end of the room, no hunting, no bother.

When a camera/lens cannot find focus, it should default to focus at infinity. So it seemingly focusing on the curtains at the far end of the room is not unexpected!

Very funny.  Zippy focus, on the curtains 8 ft away is hardly infinity.   In case you were wondering, I also focused on a cup on the nightstand, also about 8 ft away.  Same result.  Very fast, very accurate focus lock, even in an unlit room.

Sorry; you might want to update your information with some recent model experiences.....but maybe not; your choice.   Just trying to be helpful.
