Any idea why that might be? In what way are you missing the images?

Apart from the AI modes, I was under the impression that the AF systems were now pretty similar.


AF-S small single point is given more than 20% back focused shots from dark mammals like Mooses or bears. Mark II is giving with same setups almost 99% pin sharp images.

Before FW 3.1 Mark II was lot worse than EM1X, now it's lot better

Waiting for new FW 2.0 to EM1X.


Thanks for posting your findings.

I have both cameras but since getting the E-M1X I've been using that exclusively for wildlife photography (mostly birds), and use the E-M1.2 'general photography' or where I want to travel light.  Consequently I've not used my E-M1.2 for nature shots since upgrading to FW3.1.  I must give it a try.

I wonder if others share your experiences.
