Tony (or anyone who uses the Canon/OMD) what is your preferred auto focus technique with each camera. When I had the EPL-1 I used center focus and recompose or manually set focus points. This was a bit of a PITA though.

I generally do use the focus and recompose method where dof allows it but if not it's touch focusing all the way, very easy to do.

Do folks still have to focus the OMD this way? How about the Canon, do you use the screen touch focus system?

Thanks for replies!

I always focused and recomposed with the OMD and I never really used the touchscreen. On the EOS-M you have no choice and it quickly becomes second nature, it's surprised me how much I like it considering I'm a bit old school.
