    For those who have used both, can you tell the difference?

    From what I've read, E-P5 focuses faster.

    With 40-150mm f2.8 release and 300mm F4 around the corner, u43 sports photography is definitely on the horizon.

    I have always felt that my ep5 is slightly faster and doesnt hunt in low light where my em5 does..

    My ep5 is slightly quicker to focus, but strangely my p25/1.4 now chatters like crazy on the ep5 when it rarely did on the em5.
