(FT4) E-M1 user report (Very fast AF, 12-40mm lens comes with hood included)


There is a E-M1 test report over at A 43rumors reader sent us the translation:

1) The focus speed of the new Olympus 12-40mm feels faster than the [shoplink 31225]Panasonic 12-35mm X lens[/shoplink].

2) The Phase detection autofocus of the E-M1 is better than the E-5 with “slow lenses” like the [shoplink 41325 ebay]Olympus 50mm f/2.0[/shoplink].

3) The grip feels good and the battery used by the E-m1 is the same as the one used by the E-M5.

4) Since the 12-40mm lens is marked as “PRO” it will come with hood included. 43rumors’note: Finally they got it!!! :)


I also got a feedback from one of my sources. He confirmed that focus with FT lenses is as fast as with “native” MFT lenses.
