    Is it me or is the focus much faster with my 50-200mm SWD on the EM1 since the new firmware?

    Feel like it...

    I also use the vivid color and contrast bust...

    Thanks

    Anyone else have notice a change in focusing speed?

    I guess I did not ask the question...!

    I can't say 2.0 did anything special, but 1.4 was certainly faster. Where you on 1.4 or a prior version?

    Not noticed any difference 1.4 to 2.0.

    It may have affected particular lenses. I noticed the 12-60 was particularly optimised in 1.4. Maybe they did some more lens specific tweaks in 2.0, but I would have expected them to mention them in the notes which I don't recall seeing.

    Edit - without disassembling the firmware we wouldn't know.
