Re: E-M1 Mk III - CAF + Tracking ?

That is one area Olympus really should work on. I am quite (very?) disappointed with the tracking and subject detection of the em5.3 It is one thing to be able to move the lens focusing accurately when the subject moves (thanks to phase detection), but it is another to be able to follow and detect the subject in the frame.

For example, compared to the G9, yes, focusing feels more sure footed thanks to the absence of flutter in the evf, but the G9 follows the subject much better when it moves within the frame, certainly when it is a person or an animal, resulting in a higher hit rate most of the time.

And let's not even mention Sony's latest cameras, which are miles ahead in that regard.

Olympus focusing system reminds me that of a 2010 SLR. Quick and accurate, but not very "smart".
