Tell me one thing. Did you used 50-200swd on E-M5? If yes it was usable?

Not in my opinion.  It would work, slowly, and with much fuss.

So I elected not to bother.  It would certainly be unusable for what I use the 50-200 for.

Not in manual focus. Just S-AF, point to something and shoot. How can you about this. Usable or frustration.

E-M1 is night and day, right?


And btw I spoted those two E-m1 pictures easily. They are different. Colour?

No, there is no colour difference.

I noticed that the two that are darker happen to be from one camera, but that is purely coincidental.  This is a thread about AF performance of this lens, since there have been conflicting reports -- including from DPR, which I now view as nonsense.
