    Yes, if I was going to get a full frame camera, it'd be a (non faulty) D750 rather than an A7. That's the only system where I can actually see a big enough difference from M43 to warrant purchasing. My wife, kids, house, work and available time and effort to lug that system around are what's getting in the way of that though.

    I use both an EM-10 and a d750. Both have their place: the EM-10 is small and produces good pictures, much more convenient. The D750 is huge, cumbersome - and cranks out great pictures. Don't get me wrong, the EM-10 is usually more than good enough - but in low light in particular, and fast focus, the D750 has a significant edge.
    Now if I were starting from scratch as a rational person, I don't know that I'd make the same choices, but they're both great. Honestly, I use the EM-10 more, just purely because I don't have the luxury of toting the Nikon around as often.

    Why is this posted in Olympus Cameras forum? Dave, your threads are seriously getting tiresome. It's borderline trolling at this point. Buy another system, and take yourself to a forum where it is discussed already, if that's what you want.

    Would it be too much trouble to move this to the correct forum, mods?

    Another troll thread by DiW taking pot-shots at Olympus. Shocking.

    If one cannot say anything constructive then why say anything at all?

    I posted it here because Oly owners are 'always complaining' about the P**s poor C-AF.
    It doesn't bother me one iota as I never use C-AF, but I was seriously impressed.

    I'm firmly committed to Oly and love the system, the E-M1 is a fabulous camera and I eagerly await the Mk ll.

    It could have been put in the 'Other Systems' sections, but I thought that complaining Oly owners ought to see what is 'possible' with tracking, I had no idea myself.

    Now, can we please stop 'kicking' DiW for a while and have a go at another shmuck.

    Not sure at all that DiW is trolling - as he says, he loves M43/Oly and TBH, it's not as if he spends his time posting pictures from any other system(s) and going on and on about them on this forum.

    Looks about as accurate as the E-M5II tracking AF that I have seen elsewhere online.

    Except the E-M5II is doing it at 10 fps to the D750 puffing at 6 fps :doh:

    Except the E-M5II is tracking over the entire image area but the D750 is about 20% :rofl:

    But like he says in the video, the D750 is sooooo much better than earlier Nikons. :laugh1:

    I don't think DSLR's having better CAF is particularly news. No particular surprises here.

    Is it just me or does that goon with the glasses have one of the most slap-able faces around, every time I see his smug smirk I get this uncontrollable urge to punch the monitor.
