43 Rumors | Blog | (FT5) Olympus "reinvents" the AF system! It is incredibly fast! Interesting. Keep in mind though that the faster AF, according to the rumor, is only for new lenses. That means Older lenses may or may not focus faster. I think its great news, but bad news, because Olympus is basically obsoleting lenses pretty fast. This could mean that all the current lenses could get a refresh in new design to have faster AF. This is why I have personally been so hesitant to buy more lenses. After Olympus redesigned the collapsable lens for faster AF, it left a bad taste in my mouth considering that was my biggest complaint about the first collapsable lens.
