I would agree if other systems were no better. But the d7100 is impeccable AF , and cheaper than e-m1.

You're entitled to your opinions, but frankly, claims such as being able to tell misfocused shots from facebook photos suggests to me that you may have an unrealistic view of photography generally. (That is only my opinion, too.

D7100 is 300-400$ cheaper. Not a pro body but pretty close.


"Pro-level pricing"? No, I don't think so. :

All of them.

Are you talking about macro shooting, portrait distances, landscapes...?

Also, if you take lots of photos with a very narrow DOF then you'll likely get more mis-focused shots than if you shoot with a deeper DOF.

It wasn't a simple conclusion for me to make, but only after painstakingly going through every possible problem aside from sending it off the service (and i'm 99% sure they would just send it back saying it looked fine and I'm crazy), I make that conclusion.

I don't make conclusions based on other people's experiences. My opinion come out of my own experiences, and confirmed by others. You're absolutely right about many AF "problems" not being problems with AF.

Yes, well, you appear to be another self-appointed 'expert' -- so you may want to weigh in to these sort of threads, because others clearly don't understand that they are notexperiencing AF problems. (The thread I linked to is presently sitting in the "Top threads" list, where it was yesterday as well. Go forth and convert the heathens who dare question the true religion of perfect AF! )

But I have .

As I don't have Canon / Nikon / Pentax / Sony / Samsung / etc. equipment comparable to mine it is difficult to make any sort of definitive 'cross system' assessment

Clearly we have different opinion but we are arguing about 5-year old systems. Let's focus on (har har) the present, namely the E-M1. I provide my experiences with past AF as a reference to gauge the E-M1 capability.
