Do you own both an e-pl5 and an em1?

I photographed an event which was rather well lit with an e-pl1 and my 17mm f/1.8 and 45mm lenses and was frustrated by the sometimes stubborn focus acquisition.

I left my VF2 at home and shot using the lcd.  I used both normal and face recognition focus and was left frustrated many times by inaccurate focus.

What I'd like to know is do you have better luck with the em1 and these lenses.

It has been my observation that in general the gh2 achieves focus with the lcd faster than the e-pl5, so I'm wondering if I do have get a camera which has more reliable focus with these lenses if I would be better off with the gx7.
