Let's be clear, the ONLY thing about E-M1 that matters is...

Re: Let's be clear, the ONLY thing about E-M1 that matters is...

If the rumor reports are true then the E-M1 focuses as fast with most 4/3 lenses as it does with m4/3 lenses and somewhat better then the E-5.  If this holds true in testing, then they got the on chip PDAF right.  CDAF with the new 12-40 is rumored to be very fast as well.

There has been nothing that I have come across posted about C-AF capabilities.  We are going to have to wait & see on this one.  However, the if E-M1 can successfully manage tracking countinuous autofocus at high frame rates and has the IQ and dynamic range found in the E-P5 then Olympus has a real winner on its hands that may prove to be more signficant than the E-M5.

For me, I already own an E-M5.  I am really looking forward to the 12-40 f/2.8 lens as I have been hoping for an alternative to the CA issues of the Panasonc 12-35mm.

Whatever the outcome, these are exciting times for m43 and 4/3 owners as well
