Should i buy an original OMD EM-1?

I have the original omd em5. I like it but the autofocus on moving animals sucks. I find myself closing the aperture, prefocusing at a spot and pressing the shutter when animals move through that spot. not the best method for consistent results.

How good is the original EM-1?

I'd like to stick with micro 4/3 and I want the benefits of PDAF. I'm weighing up saving for one of the newer models or getting the original second hand. Looking for opinions from current and former users of this camera on the effectiveness of the focusing system in this camera.

Thanks
