On a side note: I know from own experience that the focusing using these lenses on the E-M5 is slow and is also not 100% reliable.

Agreed on both counts. I have the 12-60SWD and the 50-200SWD and both are slow and jittery to focus so I find I'm not using them on my E-M5i. If I do use them, it's generally for landscapes and I use manual focus.
