How does the G85 focus speed and accuracy compare to the EM1 I?

How about the Sony A7II?

What about low light?

With what lens ?

Static or moving subject ?

There are a ton of variables and one can't simply say "its better" or equal etc

12-60 and 100-400mm

Both static and moving.

Panny generally seems faster in low light to focus than Olympus, though both are accurate. Panny's one-shot AF is near instant in most any situation

Olympus EM1 will track a bit better but isn't up to current mirrorless PDAF cameras like the A6300, XT2 etc

My GX8 worked well enough in C-AF though, even without PDAF, just that I maybe only got a 50% in focus rate, but when shooting burst I'd at least get something, so generally I'd consider it still plenty usable.

A7II isn't quite as quick in S-AF but still pretty darn fast, might edge the Panny in tracking

12-60 is a relatively slow lens though, as is the 100-400 so in lower light that is going be a limiting factor to some extent on either camera body.

I really wouldn't go for any of those choices if AF tracking was important though, all get the job done but there are tools out there that will do a better job
