(FT4) First E-M6 rumors. Same VF-4 viewfinder quality and Phase Detection on sensor. | 43 Rumors Not sure if having phase-detection AF is good or bad thing on next generation of Olympus OMD. It's confusing because when Sony started to incorporate Hybrid Phase & Contrast Detect AF System, not all E-Mount lenses are compatible despite having firmware upgrade. There are unknown as to where the m43 AF system will be. What direction Olympus is taking this? Is it (1) improvement of current contrast detect, (2) completely new phase-detect like or (3) hybrid of the two. I would assume that going to completely new phase-detect AF may render incompatibility of native m43 lenses but opens up m43 body to legacy 4/3 lenses. Going hybrid AF system that works for both 4/3 and m43 are ideal, but until there're more clarity on this, it can be confusing whether to continue invest in native m43 (or not). It may be best to do nothing until EM6 (rumored before end of this year) is released thus more clarity.
