    Great round-up!!! Lot’s of interesting tidbits….
    (Just a helpful note: The review at Photoramblings is for the Oly E-5…not EM5).

  • Observer

    Wow! GH3 C-AF is 2X better than GH2 and now AF on GF6 is further improved(?)…

    Can only see good things coming from the GX2! More news for the GX2 please?

  • JF

    little mistake with first link: it is the 35-100 that is tested at lenstip…

    Wow. Is the GH2 that bad?

    • Anon

      You obviously hadn’t seen Oly’s CAF, it’s complete crap.

        Funny, I’ve just spent a day with my E-M5 and M.Z 75mm set on Av, continuous AF and Lo Speed sequential shooting at the Forest Rally in Western Australia and it didn’t put a foot wrong. A bit of an issue with the Viewfinder image remaining a little blurred through each sequence of about 15 shots but the results were excellent.

          The E-M5/GH3 C-AF remains very poor,cars are hardly a challenge compared to more problematic subjects like small fast moving unpredictable birds. Cars follow a set route slow down for bends and are quite predictable as well as being huge compared to the truly challenging subjects.

          • MarcoSartoriPhoto

            Hasgt… If you need to shoot birds, football players and other random (fast) moving subjects, then at this moment you can only rely on DSLRs or a Nikon 1, cameras with PDAF.

            • Michaelfromoz

              Hmmm… I think what I was getting to was that ‘Complete crap’, apart from being not a very helpful phrase, is not actually accurate.
              If you take the broad spectrum of photographic requirements that the E-M5 AF is good at, fast moving birds is a small segment and if that is your forte then the E-M5 is not for you. I did try a fairly agile and ADHD butterfly with my M.Z 75-300 Mk II and it seemed fine, but maybe I was just lucky.

  • It’s the Olympus E5 reviewed at Photography Ramblings, not the E-M5 :)

    • hagtdfghj

      Now an E-5 review is taking rambling too far lol

  • Bollox

    These comparisons really crack me up. Then the people who “know” debate them and occasionally talk about the poor sods who ignore all this stuff and only want to take photos, and feel so clever because they read DXO instead.

    • lol, spot on.

  • Excellent website. A lot of useful information here. I am sending it to several pals
    ans also sharing in delicious. And certainly, thank you to your effort!
