OM-D: shooting in live view seems choppy

    Hello,

    I tried to take some landscape shots last night with the OM-D and noticed that when in manual focus and zoomed in, the image does not smoothly come in and out of focus when I adjust the focus. Instead, it's choppy.

    Has anyone else noticed this? I was shooting with a 12mm f/2 lens.

    Thanks!

    Why don't you just increase the refresh rate of the viewfinder, at the cost of battery life of course.

    Thanks. I wasn't sure if this is a problem inherent with the camera. I'll try increasing the refresh rate to see if that fixes the problem.

    Hrm... it appears I was already at the high refresh rate. I guess it's just the way these things work. The live view transitions much smoother with other cameras I've used.
