OM1 focussing in low light always C-AF ??
1

Just have my OM1 for one day. Totally different camera from my OMD1mkII.

Focussing should be far better.. but..

When I try to focus the OM1 with 12-100 pro F4 in a low ligt situation I do not succeed at all to focus  using the "small" box with  S-Af; I have to set the camera to C-af and focussing is acceptable fast.

On the other hand when I use the MkIII ( 12-40Pro 2.8) in S-af even with smallest focus-box it is easy to focus.

Perhaps it is the difference F4.0 - F 2.8; or is S-af in the OM1 "just" contrast AF and in the OM! mkIII both PDAF and contrast af?

So you should always in low-light conditions set the OM1 to use c-af ????
