Hi everone,

Yesterday I was, finally, able to take some shots with my Lucille (Epl-1) and found some annoyances.

Using the kit 14-42 lens in continuos focusing mode the lens never stopped hunting. Instead in single af mode it focused normally.
The same thing did not happen with my 40-150 4/3 lens on the Epl-1 (I have the double kit one).

This was really annoying. Has enyone have the same problem? Is there a solution?

Firmware?

Do you have the latest firmware (fixes focus performance, 1.1 I believe)? Other thought may be that the 14-42 isn't as fast (light wise) as the 40-150 making it harder for the camera to focus.

Yes, I have the latest firmware. As siin as possible I will do other tests and let you know.
The strange thing is that it hunts but lets me take photos.:confused:

Yes, same menu location as above for E-PL1.

Mine does the same way: continuous focus as long as i keep the shutter half pressed even after the focus confirmation beep, but I've noticed that if i use CDAF+Tracking then it stops after finding focus... try it.

Yes this is the problem I posted a new thread about. I only noticed it in Scene Mode. I have noticed like you that C-AF+Tracking does not exhibit this behavior.:confused:
