Re: Focusing during video with oly omd

Yes I have the same issue with my OMD and fast lenses - and slow focussing ones such as 20mm 1.7.

I believe the OMD tends to hunt/confirm focus more often than Panny bodies like GH2/GH3, from what I've read. Panny is way ahead on this department.

OMD video auto focusing performance improves with more DOF somewhat, so your assumption is confirmed to some degree so far as my basic observations go.

To be honest, its beast to learn to use MF if viable for the scene. Good luck with really shallow DOF.
