First Olympus E-P1 autofocus test with firmware 1.1

Gearlog made an autofocus test with the new firmware 1.1. Their conclusion is that there are no remarkable improvements. Focus Numerique also made a test (french). English google translation is available here . Their conclusion: “In AF-C mode, the autofocus does seem more responsive and especially in video mode, the problem of pumping and loss of focus was not resolved

A more simple test has been made by Lucifer himself ;)

Photoreview Australia made a very detailled review of the GF1. One more time they have proven that they are very quick in testing new product (the 20mm f/1.7 lens has also been reviewed!).

The GF1 showed impressive image quality and “…All these factors provide reasons for nominating the GF1 as an Editor’s Choice in both the Advanced and Four Thirds System categories.
