Yep one you can trust. I trust them emphatically as they have no vested interest like some of the blogers out there. Ephotozine is anther they are one of the only Sites to show the distortions on m4/3 lenses pre correction the others just pass them over.

Yep I can trust DPR.

I don't think it is about "trust" so much as a good process.

Note that these are "first impressions" -- and, apparently, compared to the Canon 70D.

We'll need to see some proper side-by-side type well-controlled testing to get a handle on how this new-fangled PDAF implementation works.

Seems ridiculous to disable AF in video, too.  Especially as they have a generic mic input now.  Olympus don't seem to trust their 'PRO' users to be able to adapt to the possibility of noise pick-up from standard FT lenses.

(Or, more cynically, they only want the shiny new MicroFT lenses to be fully usable for video.)
