Re: Olympus OM-D E-M1 low light auto focus performance

As for the workaround I just learned that enabling "Live view boost" together with "High frame rate" makes a faster AF with still rather good visible picture.

Now, for the shortcut problem I also found a workaround:
I saved "MySet 1" with "Live view boost" = off and "Frame Rate" = normal. I also registered Fn1 button as shortcut to "MySet 2".
Then I saved "MySet 2" with "Live view boost" = on and "Frame Rate" = high.

Now I can quickly switch between fast AF when it's dim and normal AF when there is plenty or basically no light by just pressing the Fn1 button.

Still not Panasonic (does all automatically) but a real good workaround.
