In good lighting, you can almost always take a photo in less then 1 second from focus to picture....in dark situations, it can take 1-1.5 seconds to find a focus point.
There are lots of cameras with better response, but this one can get covered in sand, mud, and rinsed off in water, which sold me.
Better than mine. Can you zoom while shooting video? The Olympus won't.
Thanks! Might check this one out when it is time to check out how "tough" the Olympus is.
