No, but you're mixing up two things.

The OM-D will use continuous AF when firing at 4FPS.

The continuous AF on the OM-D will probably not be as good as the continuous AF on a phase detect camera.

If that's the case, then it's agrees with what I said in the first place. The single AF is, by all accounts, excellent. The multiple FPS shooting is excellent. When you use them together, they don't really work.

I suppose you could argue that yes, the camera is technically still trying to focus, it just often misses, but okay. I'll grant you that.

No idea. I've only seen one vaguely scientific test and it showed them to be a lot closer than what I'd heard - with the OM-D at sort of low end DSLR C-AF capability.

I don't have two cameras to compare it against, just my old DSLR, which had crappy continuous AF.

Also, the confusion between continuous autofocus and tracking autofocus doesn't help either.
