EM5.3 C-AF performance (from DPR review, and vs Fujifilm)

Isn't it supposed to have the same AF performance as the EM1.2, after the latest EM1.2 firmware?

From the conclusion of the just published review:

"And even considering that, in our testing it looks like the E-M5 III actually takes a step backward in terms of its continuous autofocus performance from the E-M1 II"

And in the comparison to the current gen Fuji X-T30:

"You get a larger sensor (....etc...etc.....), far better autofocus..."

Anyone compared the EM1.2 to current gen Fujifilm AF (XT3, XT30, XPro3) in real world use? I previously owned the XH1 and XE3 (last gen Fuji) and had compared them to the Oly EM1.2 (pre-firmware) and based on my limited tests, the Olympus was better.

Would you the difference is 'significant' in real world use (in C-AF) (e.g. Not BIF, but children running erratically)? Even considering the latest EM1.2 firmware?


Olympus E-M1
