I left the bigma at home (Weather forecast and the intention of using the E-5 ) and took the 50-200 and EC20 with me. I was sitting on the beach with the E-620 (crying in my beer ) and thinking about CAF and the E-M5 and CAF in general . Well I had the E-620 with me and everyone knows it does not focus well.

As I found out. I thought I have nothing to lose so I put it in CAF mode and selected all focus points and tried a few shoots. I was amazed the focus snapped in and tracked well. Ok they where gulls and the light was good but I was impressed. ( I have never tried before because most people (Including myself ) recon it’s not good) I actually got a lot of keepers and if I turned IS off the might have been better.

Here are some of the gull shoots. ( All crops)

Just with the 50-200
