Is it worth getting the OM-1 for animal eye autofocus?


I currently have an E-M1 Mark iii and some PRO lenses and I’m really happy with the images I get.

After my old cat died, I adopted 2 kittens (litter mates) and have been taking a lot of photos of them as they are growing up.

i have noticed that a lot of my shots are focused on their noses, rather than the eyes, so the eyes (arguably the most important feature of a cat...) are slightly soft.

i was wondering if users of the OM-1 could comment on the “hit rate” of sharp eyes for the pet autofocus AI mode.  Is it worth getting the OM-1 for this feature?

Thanks in advance...

Cheers Kevin
