I did a test on C-AF to determine if the C-AF is indeed usable or not after the Olympus EP1 firmware update from ver 1.0 to ver 1.1
I am using C-AF, multi AF point and P mode setting.
As for the lens i use a m43 adapter to 43 and use the zuiko digital 50-200 f2.8-3.5 and shoot at 200mm
Based on my results below the C-AF is more than capable of shooting kids which some photographer claim they are unable to and the C-AF certainly works very well.Please bear in mind that this was shot from a 6 storey apartment with 200mm focal length and that is 400mm equivalent in 35mm format!
