As a Nikon DSLR owner and a Panny GX1 owner, I'm beginning to be interested in the E-PL5 because of its body IS and its greatly superior EVF (to the Panny), but the missing element for my shooting style is the lack of an AF-ON button on the E-PL5. I never did develop the touch for the half press of the shutter button to focus followed by remaining pressure needed to fire the shutter. My style is to focus first and shoot when the timing is right and I don't have the feel for combining the two functional elements at or near the same time. I've looked at the instruction msnual and the AEL/AFL options seem to permit some sort of lock for AE using the Fn button but any option for an AF lock that would effectively permit a conventional AF-ON operation like that provided by the Nikons and the Panny seems to have been foreclosed. Has anyone come up with a work-around?
