Re: AF issues with 50-200 on E-M1ii

Other examples I've had have been on landscape shots with distant tress with nothing in a nearer focal plane to upset the AF. I'll take some shots later and post to show some examples.
That sounds like you need to do those adjustments. Maybe do the tele end for longer distance subjects & the wide end with closer subjects. When doing my 50-200 SWD lens on the E-M1 I only needed to do the tele end. It may be fine after the adjustment for closer subjects still. I think you'll need to suck & see.
