    I've been out of the loop a bit in the latest Olympus news. Have there been any Pen-F firmware updates yet? I haven't found anything. Would have thought here would have been something because the focus tracking and continuous autofocus are extremely poor. I love everything else but the C-AF is so annoyingly bad.

    Yeah... guess i'll assume the poor auto focus is a hardware issue.

    Have you tried S-AF? Incredibly fast and accurate.

    Olympus C-Af on contrast detect only sensors is not something that is usable. Hopefully you didn't buy the camera for that purpose. If you need C-AF, then getting an EM1 or a Panasonic GH4 is the best m43 option out there right now.

    Or just wait for the EM1 II, which is supposed ot be a quantum leap ahead. I've also heard the GX85 is much better.
