The E-M5 cannot replace a DSLR.
Jun 12, 2012

I thought I finally bought the ideal camera. Small, light and with great IQ.
I rushed to sell my E-30 and all my 4/3 lenses.

To replace my 50-200, I bought the Lumix 100-300. What a mistake. The lens cannot keep up with fast paced air show. Focusing was a disaster when it came to the fast moving airplanes. I want my 50-200/EC14 back.

The following images were shot at CFB Borden, Ontario. The day was very hot. I had to quit early because of the focusing frustration, lack of spare battery, and heat.

The camera/lens should make a great static birding kit, but cannot replace a DSLR.
Here are some of the images from the air show.

My nickel, since the penny is being discontinued...
