Re: good fast S-AF with my Four Thirds (SLR) lenses is what I most hope for

Different people have different needs for PDAF: owners of Four Thirds SLR lenses like the 14-54, 50-200, 12-60 want them to function "normally" including AF: beyond that, high frame-rate tracking AF matters a lot to some, but little or at all to others like me.

Sure. But if it does not matter, there are other, cheaper and/or cameras for you.

No, there are none that give my good fast AF with my Four Thirds SLR lenses, while having a good up-to-date sensor and ability to also work with my MFT lenses.

If E-M1 does not provide it, it looks just a slightly improved revision of E-M5 ...

with well over $1000 worth of nice 4/3 SLR lenses, the addition of good fast S-AF is far more than a slight improvement for me; it is a big improvement over every other MFT camera in existence --- and a big improvement over any Four Thirds SLR due to its newer, far better sensor and ability to work with my MFT lenses too.

Smaller lenses, better in low light, more telephoto reach:
you can have any *two* at one time.
