It just might.Thank you! Maybe the XT1 will be the camera that finally makes me divorce m4/3.
How well is the predictive PDAF working in the E-M1? Are there any sample series to look at, similar to what I posted on Tuesday here: http://flickr.com/gp/25805910@N05/i58Tu8The AF speed, lens selection, and small package is what kept me coming back to m4/3 over and over again. Sounds like the XT1 might "finally" have matched the m4/3 in terms of AF speed.
That's what I'd like to find out. I know the E-M5 doesn't even feature PDAF, so predictive tracking is a no-go. But I thought the X-M1 might offer an improvement here. Maybe I was too optimistic.So maybe the XT1 is the best in the market now!
I was starting to think maybe there were drawbacks to on sensor phase detection and tracking but the Nikon one system does a fantastic job of it.Don't all cameras with a phase detect AF like DSLR's have some type of predictive algorithm when the AF is set on C-AF?
My A7 has phase detect on its sensor, but I certainly don't trust it to track any moving subject with much accuracy (maybe a turtle).
