I have both an XZ-2 and an E-PL2 and I'm considering to trade in the E-PL2 for a new E-M5.My current cameras tend to have trouble locking focus on moving objects like playing children for instance. According the the review of the E-M5, this is also an area of weakness of that camera.I would like to know how much the focus reliability of the E-M5 has improved, compared to the XZ-2 or E-PL2.Thanks!
My first DSLR was the Nikon D3100, which I only used for a couple of months before receiving a trade offer (non-photography related) that was too good to refuse. At first I thought I'd buy the Nikon D5100, but I've stumbled into the world of MILCs, and the smaller/lighter benefits seem to outweigh the negatives for my purposes.I'm leaning toward M43 MILCs as opposed to:1. the larger sensor MILCs. I like the idea of smaller/lighter lenses and the larger sensor MILCs like Canon's offering, lose...

I'm new to this and need some guidance. If I were to buy the Panasonic Lumix 7-14mm for my Pen E-PL2 (which a good number of folks think is better than the Olympus 9-18mm [am I opening a can of worms here?]) would I lose any auto focus capability since it is not an Olympus product? This is key for me because I'll need auto focus with a lens as I'll be in a helicopter taking pictures and I'm as slow as molasses trying to manually focus. Thank you.

Hi,I've been running the 25mm 1.4 through its paces on my E-PL2, and tonight I noticed some bands of color/darkness on the screen: It wasn't exceedingly bright in the room at the time, just a lamp + overhead light. This was much more noticeable in person, and mostly disappeared when aiming at a darker object.The thing that is puzzling me is that earlier I heard some rattlesnake noises from the lens while pointing it at the bright sky & mountains - expected. But while I had these bands - no...
I have also Oly 14-150 and 45 lenses. The 14-42 appeals as it's shorter when I need a zoom to use with flash (rarely), but the 12-50 is weatherproofed, has macro, and power zoom. Seems no point in keeping both. What's your experience of IQ between these lenses IF you have owned them both? Of course the 14-150 could mean I sell them both and have a lighter kit, as I did with the E-PL2 previously - never used its 14-42 lens! Thanks for any input.
