IMHO, ANY lens on a EPL1 focuses unacceptably slow, and why I got a GF1. Have you done the firmware update that increase AF speed? Do you have the most recent firmware for the lens?
x2 for trying a different one, or the panasonic version, but if you have an Oly body, I think you have to understand that AF speed is going to be one of your challenges.
It's subjective, I know, but fwiw I didn't find the Oly 14-150 to be a slow focuser (tested on an E-PL1).
Correct, but currently, they will always be slower on an Oly body than they will on a Panny body, and it SEEMS that, currently, the Panasonic version of the lens will be faster than the Olympus version, so putting an Olympus lens on an Olympus body is about the slowest the AF will be.
I didn't say compare any oly lens to any panny lens, I said compare the oly and panny versions of the same lens.
Get a slower dog?
Isabel, that makes sense. Back it goes!
