With all the improvements for the E-M5II, PDAF is about the only thing that differentiates the E-M1, which after all is still the flagship of the range. To put PDAF in the E-M5II would have virtually made the E-M1 redundant.

Olympus obviously intend to continue 3 clear lines in the OMD range and users who value PDAF will, quite rightly, have to wait their turn for the E-M1 to be ugraded or replaced. In the meantime the E-M1 remains very much available and is the natural choice for photographers wishing to use 4/3 lenses on Micro Four Thirds.
