    Looks like one of the tricks the new Canon 650D has up its sleeve is the ability to do phase detect autofocus directly off of the sensor when in Live View. Their system then uses CDAF to 'fine-tune' the focus afterwards.

    Still, seems like this is the sort of thing Olympus could (and should) do to enable full-speed AF with 4/3 lenses on m4/3. That is if they still have any intention of doing so...
