    Does anyone have this combo that would be able to tell me if this lens focusses any faster on the E-P3 than it did on previous bodies (e-pl2, e-p1, etc)?

    I read that the 12-60mm focusses faster on the E-P3 and was wondering about the 50-200mm mk1 (non SWD). I use the 14-54mm mk2 with my e-pl2 and find that the focus speed is very acceptable for my use. However the 50-200mm is much slower to focus since it's pdaf. However I might consider upgrading to the E-P3 if it would focus the 50-200mm a bit faster.

    Anyone?

    Thanks!

    Oops, should have posted this in the "adapted" lenses section, right? Not sure how to change it.

    I only have the 50-200mm SWD. Yes, that lens is faster on my E-P3 than on my E-PL1. No, it still isn't as fast (in terms of AF) as a native telephoto m4/3 zoom like the 40-150mm.
